Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
Hope Someone Can Help. I am using Vista Business Edition on a Dell Vostro 1400 laptop. For whatever reason the gadgets in my Windows Sidebar arent loading properly. For example the Clock gadget appears totally black with no numbers and the Notes Gadget doesnt show up except as a little rectangular shape which is black in color.
The last thing I did prior to this happening was to do a system restore since the comp wasnt loading properly and after that I downloaded an update for Windows Defender.
Any thoughts to what went wrong and how I can get the gagdets to work again would be greatly appreciated.
1.) close sidebar and exit it
2.) accessories> command prompt [right click and choose 'run as administrator']
3.) type in these three in the given order
regsvr32 msxml3.dll [enter]
regsvr32 scrrun.dll [enter]
regsvr32 jscript.dll [enter]
after each enter you will get a success dialog window
Open sidebar and it should work.....

Save the below lines in a text file and rename it to bat (.bat), then execute the batch file as administrator. it worked for me.
taskkill /im sidebar.exe /f regsvr32 /s msxml3.dll regsvr32 /s scrrun.dll regsvr32 /s jscript.dll regsvr32 /s atl.dll Regsvr32 /s "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\sbdrop.dll" Regsvr32 /s "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\wlsrvc.dll" reg delete "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones" /f "C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exe"
