Lost sidebar

I've completely lost my sidebar -- if that's the right term -- you know,
that thing with the gadgets. I don't even have that "+" or "-" thing at
the top. Could I inadvertently have turned it off? If so, where is the
switch?

in the search box write sidebar then click windows sidebar from results
the side bar will open


then go to the side bar icon next to the clock and right click it and go to properties
and put a tick in " start sidebar when windows starts" and hit apply

all done :)

Click Start, type "sidebar.exe" and Press ENTER.

If Sidebar does not launch, then you need to register a couple of modules for the Sidebar to work correctly. See:

Hi Ramesh,

I was wondering if there was a problem at your site. I refer a lot of people to your site, but here lately all I get is a "Forbidden" message or the "Apache 2 Test Page" when I try to click on a link to your site.

I hope all is well.
