I have tried going onto the 'regedit' registry, as follows: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Sidebar\Settings
but i could not find the settings folder. All there was, was the compatibility folder.

There are also many other methods that i have tried, but to no avail.
Any help would be appreciated.
