    Hi

    I am having trouble with Windows Sidebar starting up.

    Over the last few days it is taking 2 or 3 system restarts
    before the Sidebar itself loads. I have run sidebar from
    Explore but it does not start up, it is possible that has
    some effect on th next system restart.

    Can any one offer any advise please?

    Thank You

    Shino

    and for me it was easy once I understood how and why:

    For me it were really stupid, they dissapeared when changing between profiles except on my admin ones.

    It happend to be the "Start gadgets when windows starts" in the controll panel for gadgets properties.


    Stupid yes but now it works like I want

    Thanks for your help, I tried the Command Line approach but it did not appear to work but it put me on the right track. I disabled the Auto Start and put a shortcut on my desktop and can now start Sidebar up from there.

    Cheers
