Thread: Sidebar gone

    Default Sidebar gone

    I uninstalled a program, rebooted the machine and installed an updated
    version of the program followed a reboot. Now Sidebar does not load and if
    I run Sidebar.exe nothing happens.

    Any idea how to get it back?

    You could also try a System Restore from a point when they used to work.

    Thanks for the link to Nitropdf - it was reinstallation of this program that
    caused the sidebar to disappear but now back.
