Run time errors after 'uninstalling' Piano gadget

1
I recently tried to download and install a Gadget called "Piano" which would put a piano keyboard on the screen. It downloaded and installed okay. When I dragged the keyboard from the sidebar onto the screen it enlarged as expected but when I tried to play the keyboard I began getting Run Time Errors and it didn't work at all. In frustration I simply deleted the Gadget.

Since then, I have been getting Run Time Errors at random times, usually when closing a program or when hitting a link within a program, sometimes when opening a program. This doesn't happen all the time, or with every program or with the same program every time.

The error notification asks if I want to Debug. If I hit Yes, nothing (apparent) happens, the error box just pops up again. If I hit No, or hit Yes three or four times, the box disappears and everything seems to work as expected.

The errors I have been getting are:

Line:298
Error:'feedArticleContent[...].description is null or not an object

Line:175
Error:Object required

Line:91
Error:'this.data.request.readyState' is null or not an object


I'm running Vista Home Premium, factory loaded on a Dell Inspiron 1505 laptop. Before the failed Gadget I had no problems at all. What's going on here? What should I do to correct these "errors" or how can I prevent them?

Until I read "Vista", I would have said "Get Advanced WindowsCare". It sounds like an improper un-install may have damaged your registry a bit. Those errors look like IE (maybe RSS) errors). I think that they happen at random because RSS feeds are read in the background at idle time. Try un-subscribing to all RSS feeds, for now, and see if they go away.
In any case, this thread needs to be moved to the Windows Forum.

Since you say "I simply deleted the Gadget", it makes me think that you may want to re-install it and then "un-install" it the proper way. That may clean up the problem, also.
