One of the most useless, loved and hated features in Windows Vista is its nice sidebar which, thanks to its widgets shows you a lot of infos as well as junk. Sometimes, upon starting Windows Vista, it may happen that the sidebar does not start automatically with it. Here is a couple of tricks to apply.

  1. Click Start.
  2. Type Sidebar in Vista’s Start Menu Search bar and press Enter.
  3. Now you should be able to see the sidebar.

If this doesn’t work try this other trick:

  1. Click Start.
  2. Type Sidebar in Vista’s Start Menu Search bar and press Enter.
  3. Click Windows Sidebar Propierties.
  4. Make sure  that Start Sidebar when Windows starts is checked.
  5. Click OK.

If this doesn’t work as well, try this last trick here:

  1. Click Start.
  2. Type CMD in the Start menu Search and press Enter.
  3. Click on the CMD icon and click on Run as Administrator.
  4. In the Command prompt copy and paste this piece of code and press Enter: regsvr32.exe atl.dll
  5. Copy and paste these codes too, one after another and press Enter after each of them:
  6. cd /d “%programfiles%\Windows Sidebar”
  7. sidebar.exe /regserver
  8. regsvr32.exe sbdrop.dll
  9. regsvr32 wlsrvc.dll
