Windows Sidebar

Recommended Posts

I have Windows Vista, and I've always had the Windows sidebar until a few months ago it suddenly vanished and never came back. I tried restarting the computer, because usually if I restart it, it comes back, but ever since it never came back. I went to the control panel, personalization and appearance and clicked on the option for windows sidebar, but nothing happened. WIll I ever get the sidebar back?  :sad:

I appreciate your help

goto start > then in the search box at the bottom, type "sidebar"      without the quotes, and bam, there you go :)

If this does nothing, or gives you an error that there needs to be a service running, post it , and someone will help you get it running again

I killed the SideBar as one of the first things I did to Vista to Fix it to work better.  :twisted:

My Windows 7 RC is on the new build machine now(off the old tester machine) and it's just so freaking awesome. Fast and no crashes.

use task manager to look for any process of sidebar.exe if so end them

then run this file (will enable sidebar in registry) after you run - restart

next do search for windows sidebar...look for sidebar properties then see that "start with windows is enabled"
