No gadgets onscreen, but sidebar.exe is running in Task Manager.

How do you uninstall it if the gadget window won't won't open ?

There is an install option , but no uninstall.

If I click it , it says it's already installed

If I click replace, it says it's already on the desktop.

Can't see anything, and still can't open the gadget window

Can't you just delete it from the location Mr. Grim gave you?

Hi thanks,

I had already stopped sidebar in Task Manager and deleted it.

But a quick scan with regscanner indicates some registry keys under "sevenforums". 38 in fact -they won't all be for this gadget, but to save digging thru manually, I put the folder back to see if there's a way of doing a proper uninstall.

Maybe I'll delete it again and see if my registry cleaner will do any good.

OK, that's done it.

Wise regcleaner found around 20 - javascript and skins , and Glary seemed to pick up a couple more.

Regscanner now only shows 14 under sevenforums, and I can see what they are.

All clear - gadget window opens properly again.

So how come this gadget isn't working for me ? Shame - it looks pretty good.

Guys - thanks for your speedy and helpful responses - really appreciated.

Completely off topic - like the Avatar.

Patrick Stewart gave the best stage performance I ever experienced - in The Master Builder. Mesmerising.

I went right at the end of the run - if I had seen it earlier , I would have gone again. Bumped into him a couple of times - pleasant guy, too.

If you want to try this mod just put this folder in your gadgets folder.

I kinda like the one on the right, maybe a little lighter contrast though.

Hello to all...Nice to see you're doing some modding yourselves

I read about SIW's problem, I don't know why it could be happening. Do you have the latest version? 1.1 ?

I don't think I've asked the gadget to save anything to the registry. perhaps windows does it itself for some default settings, like opacity etc...
As for uninstalling, you probably have some other issue. Try having it closed completely, and on the gadgets page, right-click on it and select uninstall.

Will post back later with some updates I'm working on. (Flyout window is on its way)
