! just logged in to say its not "solved" in this way ("Gadgets have been discontinued", "Microsoft has discontinued gadgets" and so on)!
Here how you fix this issue:
Go to "C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Services\Cache", open "Config.xml" (RMB -> Edit) and save it (File -> Save) without doing any changes. After 10-20 seconds restart the gadget!
 
This advice worked, and my weather is now back on duty ..... I sincerely hope that it works for you guys also ......

Worked for me as well, thanks for the fix. I really missed the Weather gadget.

Worked for me too, thanks very much!

Just wondered, it's a bit worrying that whatever this mysterious possible bug is or maybe is inside a compromised gadget just negates the reason for having expensive anti-virus software in place.
