I realy like the idea of a Windows 7 Gadget voor Webroot on my desktop so you can acces everythin easily. Just like more Antivirus company's do.

Hey rnuis! We appreciate this idea, but after reviewing this idea internally, we decided that gadgets are just not something that we want to have as a feature of SecureAnywhere. With our new product line focusing on being light and unintrusive (and with the industry moving that way in general with the Windows 8 launch coming soon) we want to stay focused on a simple online experience. No more gadgets for now - but you may see a Metro app!

Another good reason not to have a gadget - according to a new article from Microsoft, having gadgets enabled is a good way to end up accidentally running malicious code.  They are going so far as to suggest disabling the Windows Sidebar and gadgets altogether.
