See if you can run it manually in
C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exe

Hi Shane! I sent you a Personal Message last week.

About the issue, I can't run sidebar.exe because it doesn't exist. LOL

But I found the solution:

I needed to check the box in "Features of Windows" like this:


Maybe you should add this solution to "Windows Repair (All in One)", shouldn't you?

Thanks for support.

Thats not really a fix for the program. But it would be helpful for people who uninstalled the sidebar :wink:

Here is a screen shot of it in English and I will move this thread to the help guide section :-)
