Hey People,

Had to reboot my modem today so unplugged it etc....then when my network was back on my windows Vista sidebar (only on my desktop) displays, service unavailable..on all the gadgets any ideas?

I thought it might take some time etc..but still nothing is there...

Would appreciate any solutions...

Thanks

You will need to re-register some of the Component Object Models (in command prompt) as per:

Regsvr32 atl.dll
Regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\sbdrop.dll"
Regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\wlsrvc.dll"

Edit:Ah just seen you've re-enabled it.

I get my daily fix of dilbert through the gadgets and it's great for keeping track of the exchange rate.
