Wandering gadgets on Vista

If you disconnect a gadget from the Windows Sidebar, to place it anywhere on the desktop, it will in time wander further and further to the left. It's probably moved a couple of pixels when the computer is started. So after some time, they have moved soo far away that you manually have to move them back in place. I tried to report this bug in 2007 or 2008 with no success. I have observed it on different computers and different Vista versions. It's quite amazing that this bug has escaped Microsoft for so many years. Or maybe they consider it to be fixed - by developing Windows 7. :-/

Windows Update bug on Vista Home Basic 32

If you manually click on "Search for new updates" in Windows Update, and it finds new updates, and then you want to list the updates to be able to mark those you want to install - you can't see any updates. The list is empty as shown below:
If you restart the computer, the updates are shown in the list again.
If windows finds updates automatically, they are shown in the list. So it's only when you do it manually this bug happens. It has not always been like this so it could be a local problem on my computer. But I have run Microsoft's tool for checking System Update Readiness (KB947821), and the log says: No errors detected.

Windows 7: Text cursor bug

When using the mouse to place the text cursor with a click, the pointer is pointing in the wrong place - it's pointing a bit in left of the pointer. So when trying to set the cursor in right of a thin letter like an l or an i, the text cursor will be put in left of the letter instead. This bug does not appear on Vista so it was introduced with Windows 7. The bug is still present in Windows 7 SP1.

Google Chrome - Spell checker bug

If you have more than one spell checking language installed, and you switch between them, all error markings from the previous selected language are still there, until you put the cursor on every word. That is quite irritating. I have reported this bug, but they have probably not read it.
