    No offense if you've done this already, but did you try restarting the system? Might want to list the steps you did take.

    edit: ah, sorry, I see you tried reinstalling iLife.

    i was installing the 09 version for the first time.because the computer works just fine but that thing bothers me.

    here's what i did(almost in that order):

    -quit my user session and start a new sessiona
    -close the widget
    -relaunched finder
    -restart the mac
    -tried to manually kill the dashboard process with activity monitor
    -updated the os
    -post on MR.

    now what should i do?:confused:

    How about try repairing permissions or resetting PRAM?

    From what I know of moving widgets between the desktop and dashboard, all i can suggest is the following.


    Click and hold the widget (so you can move it around ;) )
    While holding it, open dashboard (default F12)
    Let go of the widget.
    Now go back to your desktop and it should be back to normal.
