I currently have a Purple outline that is going all the way around the Windows Vista Sidebar... it's not over the entire thing, but it's around the Weather gadget. I'm not sure why it's there.. restarting PC, and sidebar didn't help. It's still there.

The weather gadget basically has a ring of Purple around it that has never been there before.

anyone know what this is about?

see the purple.. it's more visible in person, and much worse looking.

I've got the same thing, around the weather gadget, the calendar, and the control system gadget. It also decreased the font size in the Top Processes gadget. It started after installing today's Vista updates.
