    Administrator Privileges - Catch 22 - AARGH!

    I am trying to get the sidebar to work (I've never used Vista before). When I
    try to activate the Sidebar, I am told that "Windows Sidebar is managed by
    the System Administrator".

    But I AM THE SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR! Indeed, I haven't installed any other
    accounts on the system, as I'm the only user. What kind of mainframe
    stalinist system is this????

    Anybody who can help me please.

    THANKS - SECOND PIECE OF ADVICE WAS AN INSTANT FIX.

    Your time much appreciated, the Sidebar now works beautifully, and I love
    (in a way) Vista again.
