I have two Dell 570MT x64 computers running Windows 7 SP1 HP x64
On one computer the Windows Sidebar is working okay
On the other computer it is not working
I located the directory "Windows Sidebar" in C:\program files\
In the computer where the Windows Sidebar is not loading there is only one item located in the Windows Sidebar directory; the folder "Shared Gadgets". None of the other folders and files that are in the Windows Sidebar folder on the computer in which the Sidebar/Gadgets are working are in the Windows Sidebar folder on the computer in which the sidebar/gadgets are working.
The UAC on both computers is set to the highest level and I am logged into both computers as Administrator
I downloaded and ran Reset_Gadgets.bat
It did not fix the problem.
On the computer in which the Windows Sidebar is not working I typed "Sidebar" in the Start menu and it came up blank. In the computer in which Windows Sidebar is working I typed in Sidebar and it returned six entries.
I don't recall if Windows Sidebar ever worked on the computer that it is not working on.
Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?
