If the Stocks" gadget was one of the original addons for the Vista sidebar, you can just right-click the Sidebar and then click Add Gadgets. Double click the Stocks icon and it should appear back in your sidebar. If it was a gadget that you added on yourself, the best thing to do would be to go back to the source and add it back in. The original gadget probably became corrupted for one reason or another, quite often it is due to an improper exit by the gadget. One of these items should resolve your issue for you.

Barchart is free to members, but it does include other premium services that require monthly fees.

I cant find a way to use a live webpage desktop

The earlier "active desktop" function in Windows XP that allowed a live webpage as a desktop is no longer present in Vista. It was replaced by the SideBar. You probably need to look for a sidebar gadget that offers this functionality.

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:

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