Good 3rd party gadgets that are safe for Win 7 and Win 10?

I have the same issue with Gadgets disappearing as the question below (as reference).

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28587147/Windows-7-SP1-Gadgets-will-not-remain-on-desktop.html

Because of the additional security risk, what reliable 3rd party gadgets are out there for Win 7?  Will they also run on Win 10?
All I really want is the clock and calendar.  Others may be interesting, but not as important.

Gadgets came and went with Windows 7. There are no Windows 7-like gadgets in Windows 8 or in Windows 10.  Windows 8 (and 10) have Metro Apps for clock and calendar but they are implemented in an entirely different way.

I am glad your Windows 7 problem sorted out. Your question said "Good for Windows 10" and of course there are no gadgets in Windows 10. So you should be prepared to leave gadgets behind when you upgrade.
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.
