What won't let you?  I removed *ALL* Read, Write, and Execute permissions to
both users ~/Library/Widgets directories, and removed the write permissions
on the systems /Library/Widgets directory this morning.  Setting it on
/Library/Widgets is probably a little paranoid, and like I said this
morning, I don't know if this will have any negative effects on the system.
