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.

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:

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