I have some widgets that don't work on Leopard Dashboard but they freeze and I can't delete them the normal way. So I was wondering, how do I completely clean the dashboard and start over?

Goto activity monitor and select dashboard and click stop. so easy.

To remove Widgets you've added go to Library/Widgets under your user folder. Move them somewhere else or delete them and you should be set. I had some issues with a TV guide widget that was crashing the system with Leopard that I had to fix this way.

press alt and go over the widget you want to delete there will come a small X and press on it.
