Re: Windows VISTA sidebar

If you computer has less than 1gb of memory a number of different premium features in Vista will not work.

Let's check the amount of memory you have first.

How do i remove the sidebar

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

I had windows 7 put on my Toshiba 500 series laptop and now the camera won't open and I can't find where it is to even open it, but it shows it's working properly. I used to have a sidebar where it would...

The sidebar was the function of the camera software, in all probability. The program that controlled it needs to be reinstalled. If this is a camera that is part of the laptop, Toshiba can help. There are tricks and tips on the Toshiba site dealing with potential problems when upgrading to Win.7

My gadets slide bar has gone how do i get it back

To open Sidebar

Open Windows Sidebar by clicking the Start button , clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, and then clicking Windows Sidebar.
To keep Sidebar visible at all times, you must set it so that other windows won't cover it. The Sidebar width is a fixed size.

To keep windows from covering Sidebar

Because of the space Sidebar requires, this option works best if you're using a large or wide-screen monitor or multiple monitors.
Open Windows Sidebar properties by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Windows Sidebar Properties.
Select the Sidebar is always on top of other windows check box.
Click OK.

ASP.NET Machine Account

Go to Microsoft website and in the search bar type in ( .NET Machine support) That should take you to a help section or a page within the MS site with some answers for that problem. If not, I have found that if you run the recovery or restore at boot-up that 95% of the time it will solve the problem for you. Hope that helps.
