Just UPGRADED to 7 . . . now here is a quesiton

I have seen in the program files folder that windows sidebar is still there. I wonder, can I delete some old vista stuff that isn't used by 7 after my upgrade? are there programs folders like this that I can rremove? or Is 7 still using this for gadgets? I didn't do a clean install some I am not sure if these a reminents of old programs that no longer work

7 works great BTW

Sidebar is part of 7 you are right this is where all the desktop gadgets are stored, have clean install of 7 and its there.

Upgraded from 32 bit to 64 bit
I just completed this process and thought I would post my experience doing this. My original install was an upgrade from xp to 7 home premium 32 bit.
