Nope - it's integrated into the OS - just like IE. You can't remove it.
You can't even remove files you create because they'll get integrated
as well. It's like a Borg. It assimilates anything.

I have a same problem - Vista Sidebar used a lot of RAM and stopped the normal work of desktop.

I'd found the solution.

Attention! This text and this solution is only for professionals and may cause the serious problem in your system. If you aren't sure of needing the system components to be deleted, PLEASE DON'T DO IT!

If you want to delete an Windows component from Program Files and have an administrative login, you can open the folder contains Vista Sidebar (%systemroot%\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\) and take a full access in the folder security permissions.

For this go to Folder Properties -> Security Settings -> Advanced -> Owner and take the ownership of this folder (the old owner is the TrustedInstaller - the system installation process).

After that go to Folder Properties -> Security Settings -> Advanced -> Permissions and click "Change". Select your account and press "Change". Than get a "Full Access" to the Folder, all Subfolders and Files and check the box "Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects".

Now you can edit or deletу the folder contents including .dll and .exe files in this folder.
.......
PROFIT!

Vista doesn't show an error message an error if the Sidebar are not loaded.
