    Windows Sidebar - Gadgets Move After Rebooting

    Does anyone know why when I reboot my computer my gadgets move out of place? My other computers don't move it's only this computer.
    Vista Home Premium x64-bit SP2

    Thanks,

    Kevin

    Found a fix!

    * Close Windows Sidebar. To do so, right-click on the Sidebar icon in the Notification area and click Exit

    * Open an elevated Command Prompt window.
    To do so, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

    * In the Command Prompt window, type the following and press ENTER:

    regsvr32 msxml3.dll

    Similarly, run these commands:

    regsvr32 scrrun.dll

    regsvr32 jscript.dll

    If the registration was successful, you'll see the message DllRegisterServer in <filename> succeeded for each command executed. Open Windows Sidebar (sidebar.exe) and check if the problem is resolved. Move the gadgets to the place you want them and reboot. Problem will be fixed.
