Now my sidebar presents nothing more than the two Vista elements "clock" and "notices". And I get the accompanying information that the sidebar installation is disturbed. In addition the sidebar gadgets gallery has become inaccessible for new uploads. (I noticed this additional calamity when I tried to replace the suspect "calendrier".)
Has perhaps anybody a hint how I could untie the deplorable situation?
Thanks for your help
Yes I can offer a sort of fix in two prongs.
a) use ccleaner to fix the registry
b) put a short cut to Windows Sidebar on your desktop
Then when you get the orange cover do the following
exit the sidebar using the tray icon and click on your desktop shortcut to open a new sidebar. This often works.
If that fails clean the reistry with CCleaner and repeat the above this fixes it most times.
I have never got to the bottom of the issue but it is related to some clunky use of the registry by those who should know better - Redmond perchance?
