Windows 7: Sidebar gadget using too much CPU, being laggy

Sidebar gadget using too much CPU, being laggy


I have searched and tried things but nothing worked. So SOME of the widgets (not all, strange, eh?) are very slow to display and move, using about 15% of an i7 Quad Core... These are all the basic 7 widgets. As i said i tried things but nothing worked. I have a hint though : I made a new user account and no problem there... Must be something in my user folder so? But i've searched and delete sidebar preferences, still didn't change...

Please help
