1: Uninstall the gadget and exit Sidebar by ending the Sidebar.exe process from task manager.

2: Go to %localappdata%\microsoft\Windows Sidebar and go to the Gadgets folder and delete the gadget file(gadget installed by you).

2: Open %localappdata%\microsoft\Windows Sidebar and rename the Settings.ini file to something like SettingsOld.ini and Restart your computer.

3: Try installing the gadget again.
