Disappearing gadgets after sleep


I am experiencing weird thing. After waking up my laptop from sleep i don't any gadgets. Right click on desktop -> Gadgets and they are showing, but after next sleep there isn't any, theres also no sidebar.exe under processes tab in task manager. Some time ago i make some tweaking in registry which i found on google, but it didn't helped.

Do anyone have any idea what's wrong?
