    Default sidebar appears sometimes

    My Sidebar only appears sometimes after logging in. other times, it doesn't show. In Task Manager, sidebar.exe is listed. So what i just do is end the process and just restart the sidebar from the start menu. is there a way to ensure that the sidebar would always execute properly on logon?
    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Try selectively removing gadgets until it successfully starts at every
    logon.

    Hello Norbert Aquende,

    I was wondering if your have Vista Service Pack 1 installed? If not
    then this could fix the issue. If you do have it installed you could try
    closing the sidebar then reopening it and tell it to always start when
    Windows starts.

    Thanks for your reply. yes, it is more successful if i do remove gadgets,
    but i was just wondering if i could make my sidebar run with more gadgets
    than just a clock. i have an Outlook calendar, Outlook tasks, and the MS
    Office gadgets. I already tried re-registering the DLLs but still no change.
    I was hoping that there would be a way to ensure that the sidebar would
    execute properly or to perhaps load it at startup ahead of all the other
    apps included in the startup programs.

    my machine is updated with all the service packs and hotfixes for Vista and
    Office 2007.
    Thats what i exactly do, i just keep on goint to task manager to close the
    sidebar.exe process and restart it from the start menu. it has always been
    set to start when windows starts.

    Hi,

    My thinking is that the problem stems from one of the gadgets not loading.
    Isolating and removing that one should resolve the issue.

    Check your security programs...sometime they block or take time to scan.

    I am having the same issue. I use Kaspersky as my virus program and
    put a rule in
    for sidebar.exe to leave it alone, I still get intermittent display of
    sidebar. It does always say it is running in task manager though.
