The Purple/Pink background problem is related to the opacity settings.
You could try the following and see if this solves it (found it worked
for someone else):
1.) close sidebar and exit it
2.) accessories> command prompt [right click and choose 'run as
3.) type in these three in the given order
regsvr32 msxml3.dll [enter]
regsvr32 scrrun.dll [enter]
regsvr32 jscript.dll [enter]
after each enter you will get a success dialog window
Open sidebar and it should work.....
