Thank you for your response.

Unfortunately this does not achieve anything apart from opening the Gadgets gallery which does not have any gadgets in it although by using *.gad there are the gadget files on my system.

You could reinstall the Vista sidebar. See here ( http://www.sevenforums.com/tut.....s-7-a.html ) or you reinstall the Win7 sidebar if you can grab it from another Win7 system with the same method.

Windows 7 doesn't have a sidebar, so i don't think you can reinstall it anyhow.
