    As an alternative, you can download it from the developer's site: shredder

    I've been having the same problem as ParryD.

    Since it was working for Weaselboy I thought maybe it had something to do with where I was trying to download from. So I fired up HotSpot shield to spoof a US IP address and I was immediately able to download widgets.

    Thanks jdenormandie for your update.

    Are you trying to say the widget download is country/ region specific?

    I'm not sure why it would be, but it appears to be the case based on my sample of one.

    I'm in India, where are you?
