So what's happening, has the sidebar stopped working again? Can you go to the files you replaced and start the sidebar from the sidebar application file?

Its been said that turning off UAC disables the sidebar/gadget thing.

On mine I have turned UAC off and it doesn't work for me. I dont want to check with it on because UAC is that annoying.
