Windows 7: Sticky Notes

Sticky Notes

Recently updated from Vista to 7 on 2 machines (both Lenovo tablet PC's). I had several pre-existing sticky notes and use the program often. When I try to launch sticky notes in 7, I get a "corrupt metadata" error message. Same thing on both machines.

Need suggestions for a fix.

Thanks.

Nope, no issue with Sticky notes. What are the make and model of the laptops?
What method did you use to upgrade/install 7?

FWIW - I was able to install the beta and the RC on this tablet and locate the appropriate drivers for everything at the Lenovo website.

BUT, when I went to locate the drivers for the installation of the RTM - they were nowhere to be found. I restored the system using the Lenovo disks, then upgraded to Win7 Ultimate. There was one incompatible program - so I uninstalled that and all has worked well.

Anything better than 7's Sticky Notes?
Do you guys know any program better than Windows 7's Sticky Notes? The StickyNote 9.0 of Tenebril was the first one that caught my eye. It has some realistic 3D stuff and all, but then I have to spend some cash for it. If you guys know any freewares, that would be great.

Sticky Notes
I've used a 3M program before which had issues with multiple screens sometimes, so I was happy to see the new standard sticky app. I'm a bit disappointed with MS for letting this behave like any other app window - when I click the show desktop button, I'd like to see all my stickies that I...
