The issue that you are facing may be due to some incompatible gadget installed or corrupt settings. I will provide some steps here to get your issue resolved. We will reset the sidebar to default settings. By resetting to the default settings, you’ll have to add your gadgets back to the sidebar.
(a) First, right-click on the Sidebar icon in the system tray, and then choose Exit
(b) Check Task Manager to make sure that there are no sidebar.exe processes running that shouldn’t be. If there are, just right-click and use End Process on each of them. Start Task manager by right clicking on taskbar and selecting Task Manager.
(c) Open up a windows explorer window and then paste the following into the location bar: %localappdata%\microsoft\Windows Sidebar
(d) T his will open up the Sidebar gadgets folder, where you should see a file named Settings.ini.
(e) Y ou’ll want to rename this file to something else, or at least make a backup of the file elsewhere. This file contains your current sidebar configuration.
(f) Now once you re-launch Sidebar from the Start Menu, you’ll notice that a new Settings.ini is created immediately.
(g) If you are still having issues with a gadget, you can open up the Gadgets folder that you see above, and you’ll see a list of all user-installed gadgets, you can delete individual gadgets if you want.
