    Well, I presume you mean "gadget", not "cadget."  It's really simple to install a Win7 Gadget.  See this page:

    I'm not sure what you mean by "he used to add his desktop stuff on it."  Maybe you should inquire from him what is the name of the gadget he used, and then you could search for it on the internet.  Or just "google" for Windows 7 desktop gadget and you will find a lot of pages where you can download them...
