Windows 7: Gadget Issue

Windows 7
Gadget Issue

All of a sudden my gadgets weren't displaying after boot up. However, if I do anything related to gadgets such as search for gadgets and then click on Desktop Gadgets then they all appear. At next bootup they are all gone again.

Try making sure it is enabled at start up...

Click Start >> Type MSCONFIG >> Press Enter >> Go to the 'Startup' tab

Make sure Sidebar is checked, it is called 'Microsoft Windows Operating System'

I think this has something to do with the gadgets

Thanks JDobbsy1987 -- that was the problem. The link wasn't there at all so I just put a shortcut to sidebar.exe in my all users startup and it now comes up as it should.

Not sure how it got removed -- maybe when I was fooling with Soluto.
