IE8 and Vista sidebar issues
Windows Vista Sidebar gadgets are garbled after Installing Internet Explorer
8 and most of them (even standard MS ones) don't work. OS is Vista 32
Enterprise. How do I fix this?

I think this is an old problem 'unfixed' by IE8.....

This behavior is observed if the XML registration is missing in the system.
To fix the problem, use the following steps:

•Close Windows Sidebar. To do so, right-click on the Sidebar icon in the
Notification area and click Exit
•Open an elevated Command Prompt window. To do so, click Start, click All
Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run
as administrator.
•In the Command Prompt window, type the following and press ENTER:
regsvr32 msxml3.dll

Similarly, run these commands:

regsvr32 scrrun.dll

regsvr32 jscript.dll

If the registration was successful, you'll see the message DllRegisterServer
in <filename> succeeded for each command executed. Open Windows Sidebar
(sidebar.exe) and check if the problem is resolved.

Re: IE8 and Vista sidebar issues
Check if you are using a high dpi setting for your desktop (higher than the
default 96dpi). There is a problem with IE8 and high dpi that causes Sidebar
problems (closk stops, wrong display...)
I hope Msft is planning to fix it...

Re: IE8 and Vista sidebar issues
Yes, I use high DPI setting (132 DPI, 17" 1920x1200 screen). Unfortunately,
it's a must for me - more important than Sidebar. Hope MS will fix this
soon.

Re: IE8 and Vista sidebar issues
I found a solution that worked for me, in my two monitor setup: make sure the sidebar is displayed on monitor #1 (Primary) not #2

I have a two monitor nVidia MX 8600GTS-T2D256EZ-HD setup. For a long time I had my "Primary" display at the right, and my "Secondary" at the left - with taskbar, most desktop icons, and SIDEBAR set to display there (on #2 at left). On a hunch, I swapped cables and made my taskbar, most desktop icons, and SIDEBAR set to display on #1 "Primary" - and the IE8 sidebar funkiness went away. Multiple reboots, with or without Vista SP2 - consistently solved.

Hope this helps some people find the root cause!

Re: IE8 and Vista sidebar issues
Well ... I take it back. After 3-4 days (no updates, no system changes) the darn funky sidebar gadget issue came back. There was definitely an improvement in swapping my monitors and making the sidebar appear on the "Primary", however, this has not completely solved it. Sorry for the wild goose chase.

Re: IE8 and Vista sidebar issues
Last week I e-mailed MS online support for IE8. Today this cam in my e-mail:

"Thank you for contacting Microsoft Product support. There is a know compatibility issue between Internet Explorer 8 and Windows Vista sidebar. Our engineers are currently working on a solution for this compatibility issue. I do apologize for any inconvenience."

So at least I know it's recognized and will be fixed.
