The best solution is to re-install vista. But, for the sidebar problem, try searching for "sidebar.exe" in the start menu. When you find it, right click it, click properties, then checkmark "start sidebar when WIndows starts"

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

Mi problem is im need restart mi medion. and installeding windows vista agen


Try System Restore that way you don't loose any thing.

Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore
select a restore point (date and time) that is before you started having problems.

You can also try a System Recovery, but that loses everything and sets your system back to when you first purchased it.

Trying to reformat my hp pavilion a1520n. An error comes up <windowsroot> system32\ntoskrnl.exe. I am planning on upgrading from an xp to a vista but the computer seems like it won't accept...


It sounds a little strange because it should do as the disk tells it.
Check the BIOS is set for DVD/CD Rom drive as 1st boot device.
Insert System disk into drive. Re boot the computer and follow the on screen prompts.
Vista will have no problems because it will check the OS that is installed, notice the date stamp is older than Vista and install a new OS on the drive. XP however may have a problem. If you have SP2 or SP3 installed, your XP system disk is older and will not be allowed to load without prompting.
Hope that helps.

It went to welcome screen and after i typed in my password, got a black screen that says insert disk and press F1 or press F2 and something about setup.


This happens whenever one closes any installation prematurely. Insert the disk then properly cancel or complete the setup and restart the computer you wont get this message.

I turned on my PC one day, and sidebar just decided not to go. I dont know why or how to fix the problem. I went to do a system restore, but noticed i had no system restore points set.....can anybody help...


Having a sidebar problem would indicate you're using Windows Vista, so I'm going to go from there. Microsoft has had a lot of problems with the sidebar feature, and has dropped it in Windows 7. I strongly recommend that you turn it off and leave it off. You can get things you need for your desktop without using the sidebar.

As far as the restore points go, you should have several set up automatically, but since you don't do the following:

Click on the start button, then find "Computer" (or My Computer) in the right column. RIGHT click on Computer, then left click on Properties. This brings up the System window. Select System Protection from the column on the left side of the window (Task List). Click the CREATE button near the bottom of this window to create a restore point.

Give the Restore Point a unique name of your choosing.

Of course this won't help you now, so I would shut off the Sidebar and try to live without it. Otherwise, go to the Control Panel, find the sidebar icon and click it. Set it to open the sidebar when you start Windows. You may need to reset your preferences to get it back to what you wanted.

If this doesn't work, you probably have some type of Malware or virus on your system. The best way to check for this is to go to the following web page: www.malwarebytes.org - and download the program using the blue button. Install it (click RUN) and update it, then let it run a scan (follow the instructions). Once it's done, restart your system and see if it's fixed.

Usually, restoring your system for a sidebar problem really isn't a useful or good way to resolve the issue. For one thing, on some systems, the sidebar seems to randomly decide not to work, and on others it seems to cause other system problems. I've seen very few Vista systems that did not improve with the sidebar feature shut off.

It's important with Vista to be very particular about keeping the Malware off the system, and keeping the registry clean. Using CCleaner.exe is a good way to do this. Clean the registry at least once a week, and do NOT defrag more than two times a year. Vista seems to not appreciate too much defragging. Keeping your system healthy and shutting off the sidebar are two of the best solutions for most Vista problems. Finally, I recommend you upgrade to Windows 7 as soon as possible. Even the RC-1 is better than Vista.

I forgot my password for my laptop dell inspiron 1720


Hello,

This works with windows XP or Vista-

Windows Vista Repair through DVD Windows Vista comes with a very handy feature from Windows ME days -- System Restore. Vista's System Restore is far more sophisticated than its previous iterations and can be of a real help here. 1. Just pop in the Vista DVD, make sure your BIOS is able to boot (start) from DVD-ROM first.
2. Press any key to boot from DVD when asked.
3. Set the Language to install, Time and currency format and Keyboard or input method
4. Now click Repair your computer, select the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
5. Click System Restore, and then click Next.
6. Click the restore point that was a day before you changed the password, and then click Next.
Doing this will set your computer back in time to the particular date when it was working fine. Don't worry, you won't lose any data -- only that any settings or programs installed after that date will not be accessible anymore. All you've to is re-install and redo any settings that you did.
7. Confirm the disks that you want to restore, and then click Next.
8. Click Finish, and then click Yes when you are prompted.
9. When the System Restore process is complete, hit Restart computer.
10. You can either remove the Windows DVD or just don't hit any key on the keyboard when it asks again to "Press any key." The computer will start much faster if you remove the Vista DVD.
11. After the computer restarts, click Close to confirm that the System Restore process has finished successfully.
12. After you log on with the old password, change the password for the administrator account if you like.
13. This step is most important -- Remember the password this time.
14. Restart the computer to make sure that your new password works fine.
