I can open up my gadgets menu and launch any gadget I have, but when they load up they appear glitched and are unusable.

I have attached a picture of multiple gadgets open to show you what it looks like. Any help on fixing this would be greatly appreciated.

Couple of thoughts...don't really know the answer and all google searches return issues with other programs being choppy because of gadgets...not your issue.

1) Looks like you have an ATI video card. I do too. The driver that shipped with mine is not correct. May be worth a little research. Don't depend on windows, google the model number and go straight to the horse's mouth (if you haven't already, not trying to insult you).

2) Have a look at what else is running on your machine. You may be overburdening if you have something like Norton running constantly in the background.

Sorry I can't be more help.:)

It isnt a problem with my drivers, they used to work, just one day all of a sudden they bugged out and I cant figure out what to do. No other programs are messing them up, I have already tried disabling all startup programs.

Scan with Malwarebytes. http://www.malwarebytes.org/

Disclaimer: If the problem is malware...this is as far as I can take you due to the site rules.

Something sudden like that screams of malware, hardware, or windows updates problems. Think about what happened before the problem to your machine.
