iv just got a laptop running windows 7, i put a clock (gadget) on the desktop and a AVG gadget.
now this laptop came with an already installed virus checker, but seeing i downloaded AVG i uninstalled this pre installed virus checker but before that i put a 'system restore' point, just in case.
everything was going well until i came to a web site that said i needed to install an update/upgrade of flash player to view the video, i clicked on install and AVG kicked in and said it was a trojan and did i want to move it to the vault which i did, but as soon as i clicked on the button, to move it, the internet went off.
now im on my desktop and every shortcut i click to open i get a message ' what program do you want to open this with' which isn't right, so i decide to do a system restore and the only way to do this is through 'safe mode' and the latest restore point is before i removed the preinstalled virus checker, so i had it use that one.
all is going fine the laptop restored to this point my gadget clock is showing and the AVG gadget, now i got to uninstall the pre loaded virus checker again did that and it asked for me to restart the laptop, so i did.
now when the laptop restarted my clock gadget is just a black square with half a red line on and the AVG gadget is virtually just an outline, tried to install a gadget but in just would not, downloaded a new gadget but when doubleclick on it nothing, anybody got any ideas how to get these gadgets back
i have attached an image of what this problem looks like.
some of the information above may not be connected to the problem, but i thought it might be helpful to type all that happened before the problem.
