    Default Windows Vista Sidebar

    I have only three gadgets on my sidebar - Weather, Calendar and Clock. Frequently when I start my PC these gadgets are either wholly or partly on top of each other. Is there a means of preventing this, or separating them after loading?

    Hi all,

    I seem to have beaten all you enthusiasts!! I have uninstalled all the gadgets and re-installed them and this appears to have worked - up to now. However, watch this space!!

    This is normal when you have the gadgets loading at start up as the load on your computer is high at that point.

    I have 4Gb of ram and a Q6600 quad core CPU and some times I get it. You could try and remove some of your unwanted start up programs so you have a lower load at start up.

    I get that sometimes too. What I do is close the sidebar (right click on it > Close) and then reopen it (click on the sidebar Icon in the notification area). It takes only 2 seconds. I have 6 gadgets.

    I never use the side bar, and have turned it off as I just didn't bother with any gadets

    Thank you guys for getting back to me. I have noted all your points and will try them. I like the three gadgets that I do have so will keep them for now. If the problem returns I will consider leaving them out!
