Cannot add desktop gadgets after installing Windows update.

Original title: My Windows 7 Ultimate was just updated (again) and the gadgets disappeared from the screen.  How/where do I get them back?  I really want calendar and clock back Yesterday!!

I have attempted to right click on the desktop/per the instructions on line/ and got nothing in return.  I still cannot drag my gadget of choice to the desktop.
