Gadgets not rRsponding - Vista Sidebar Installed on Win7

I'm using windows vista sidebar on windows 7, initially most gadgets were working but now alot of them don't respond when clicked on.

Headlines gadget - theres supposed to be a window that pops out with the news info when clicked on, but now nothing happens

Digital Clock - calender does not appear when clicked on

Imp's media player - doesn't play media and laggs quite bad

I'd appreciate any help, thanks.

Go to your gadget directory usually c:\Users\your user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar and delete everything in there. Reboot.

are you sure? those are the original win 7 files, I've got another folder named:

c:\Users\your user\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Vista Sidebar
