You probably have a problem with the skin you used. I have used several and had full luck with the standard .gadget applications. Try using a different skin or reinstall the one you have now.

Good Luck!

How do i remove the sidebar


vista
On the Windows desktop, mouse over the sidebar and right-click on the search gadget you want to remove.

Click on "Close Gadget." The search function is now gone from the sidebar; however, the search gadget is still installed on your computer for future use if you ever decide to re-add the item to your sidebar.
To completely remove the sidebar search gadget from your entire computer, follow the next steps.
Right-click on the Windows sidebar.
Click on "Add Gadgets" to open a window containing all sidebar gadgets installed on your PC, including the search gadget.

Right-click on the sidebar search gadget you want to remove, and click to select "Uninstall."
Click "Uninstall" again when a Windows notification pops up, asking you to confirm the uninstall process.
After you click, the program will automatically be removed from your PC and it will no longer appear on the listing of available sidebar gadgets for Vista

windows 7


Click "Start."

Click "Control Panel."

Double-click "Windows Sidebar."

Remove the check from the box next to "Start Sidebar when Windows Starts."

Click "Save." Now, the next time you load your computer Windows Sidebar will not start.

hope this helps

Windows 7 gadgets working wrong


You dont need side bar anymore, rightclick anywhere on desktop and goto gadgets, Add the ones you want, put them where you want (side, top, anywhere) and thats your gadgets as they were in vista.

If you have installed Windows 7 beta then you must be aware of the bug that whenever UAC is switched off, Sidebar and Gadgets in Vista fails to display properly on Windows 7 Desktop. Though this is not for every machine but many users have reported this problem that their Sidebar and Gadgets are not working properly.
For older beta versions of Windows 7 there had been some temporary workarounds for the same problem. But if you are using Win7 Build 7000.0.081212 then this can be fixed using a simple registry hack which like in Vista will Elevate your Sidebar and Gadgets Process.
If you know how to play with you registry Editor then just open regedit.exe from Run command in Windows 7 and go to KEY
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
\CurrentVersion\Sidebar\Settings From there edit the DWORD value of AllowElevatedProcess and set it to 1. You don’t need to restart your Windows 7 computer after this. If your sidebar and Gadgets were not working properly earlier then they will be fixed instantly.

Dimension 5100 and windows xp pro SP3 clean install


I was able to dig this up.
Reference: http://4sysops.com/archives/tip-how-to-install-and-uninstall-a-program-in-safe-mode/

Run Windows in safe mode.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Minimal\
Create a registry key REG_SZ key and call it MSIService and value data and call it Service, which is the windows installer. This will give you permission to uninstall windows service Pack 3 from add/remove programs while in safe mode.

When opening sidebar windows installer opens .


It is likely some sidebar gadget you've got installed that wants to use bluetooth.

Take a look at the installed gadgets, and see if that makes sense. To administer gadgets (I am assuming the sidebar is not opening properly), but do try to start it, then:

Start
Control Panel
Windows Sidebar Properties
View list of running Gadgets
Remove any gadgets that may cause the trouble.
