    After restarting my laptop a few days ago, my Sidebar Gadgets didn't load properly. They now have a really weird glitchy/corrupted look, with most of the gadgets having large areas missing or blacked out or something, as seen in the linked screenshot:

    I wasn't doing anything particularly exciting before restarting (i.e. I wasn't messing around with any system files that I can recall!) - any ideas on how to get my Gadgets back!?

    Screenshot has been fixed, and I have performed a system restore to when it was working with no luck.

    EDIT: I played around a bit more with System Restore today, going back and forward to a number of restore points a number of times. Eventually it restarted with the Gadgets working properly again, and the Gadgets still look OK after a few restarts. I'm unsure what caused (or fixed) the problem, but I seem to have it fixed for the moment! Thanks for the help.
