Sidebar gadgets not connecting on Windows 7.

None of my sidebar gadgets (weather,currency conv,etc) will connect ,any suggestions please?
I am a technophobe so easy fixes would be appreciated,anything complicated and I'll do without them.

its probably an antivirus or firewall issue.

try removing and reinstalling them and seeing if it asks for permission. stay off the internet turn the firewall off and see if they connect is something else you can try.
I turned this feature off in my Vista machine & use shortcuts on the desktop instead as,from what I gather,these sidebars are resource hoggers,I certainly noticed a difference in my lappy when I turned this feature off.

yeah I got all keen on them until I found it lagging even more than windows usually does.
