Windows 7 Sidebar Gadgets Glitch

Hello everyone.. My Windows 7 Ultimate x64 has been running perfectly for more than 5-6 months, and untill now, I haven't had any problems with it (except drivers issues)
Few days ago my Sidebar gadgets 'decided' to stop working for some strange reason; I have tried many things to repair them: Restore default gadgets etc. without any success.
Here is a screenshot of my desktop > http://i41.tinypic.com/cknt1.png
All of my gadgets just look 'glitched'. I would appreciate any help regarding my problem. Thanks in advance!

Try the following. Rename your sidebar in C > Programs to Sidebar(2) - you may have to "Take ownership". Then run sfc /scannow in elevated cmd or move another sidebar folder from another system into C > Programs.

Did you rename the sidebar folder in C > Program files before you ran the sfc. Do you have a way to get another sidebar folder from another system?

Hi there,
Open taskmgr and kill sidebar.exe process.
Open the run box and type the following text and press Enter.

Code:
%localappdata%\microsoft\Windows Sidebar
Rename the Settings.ini to Settingsold.ini and then launch the gadgets again.

Let us know if it works.
