Well, I've been using the CPU, GPU & Network meters, a clock, and the Kaspersky gadget, under Vista. Now that I'm running 7, most of all I really miss the Network gatget's ability to refresh the local & ISP network settings, which very frequently drop bandwidth quite rapidly, and often seem to benefit from some frobbing. Sitting here waiting forever for DLs is so irritating, especially if I can't DO anything but sit & wait.. all the apps out there seem to focus on refreshing the list of available networks to connect to, not refreshing the one one is already on.grr. And the Kaspersky gadget is a security hole, LOL!!! what can I say! inverted humour !
