I had a number of gadgets installed on my desktop.
Now when I reboot no gadgets are shown at all.
How can I get them back?

From Control Panel. Click on Appearance an Personalization link.
Click on Windows Sidebar Properties.
Select the check box of Start Sidebar when Windows starts.

Thanks Shmoid!
I have my gadgets back.  I just wonder why they disappeared because I never touched that control panel setting!

Thanks for the grade. Not sure what might have turned it off. Perhaps an automatic update?
