Welcome to the Home Users Community, bluford2165!

Are you referring to the Windows Desktop Gadgets? Please tell us the exact name of the program so that we can verify. :)
If that program is Windows Desktop Gadgets, then it should be safe.

You're welcome, bluford2165!

Thank you for your reply too. Where will those programs be downloaded from? It depends, it will be much more secure if you can download those widgets directly from Microsoft Store.
