I have two clcoks on the desktop with two different time zones. When a strip warning appears as "Windows Desktop Gadgets has stopped working...", my clocks have black frames around and clocks stop tikking.

2, or, right-click desktop-----New---Shortcut, type "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exe" /showgadgets , click Next, type a name , then OK. Click this icon to open Windows Gadget Platform.

You probably should try running the following command from an Administrative Command Prompt (Click Start Orb, type CMD in the search box, Right-click on CMD.EXE and select Run as Administrator). 

SFC /scannow

This will run the System File Checker and verify your system files are correct.
