Widget Manager

"Widget Manager is a Preference Pane for OSX 10.4 that allows you to inspect, remove, and disable Dashboard Widgets. Widget Manager is a convenient way to manage all the Widgets on your system, including the standard Apple Widgets. Since it handles removing the .wdgt file as well as restarting Dashboard, Widget Manager eliminates Dashboard display issues when you remove a Widget by hand, and is also a great defense against potentially harmful Widgets."

Nice, but the way it disables widgets seems a tad extreme. Manually moving them out of the appropriate folder is easy enough, so I ended up uninstalling it after it sat unused for a few months.

Excellent app.
There's another similar app here too:

The one integrated in dashboard is enough for me
