This may be worth a try
Black Sidebar Gadget Error

Open regedit, Export (Backup) and then delete this registry key:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\

Restart sidebar process.

Thank you Elmer for your response.

should I delete this folder> Zones?

and also there is problem when I try to open My computer>manage> Services and applications > services. Something wrong with ActiveX.

I'll admit I'm not sure about the ActiveX ergot: Manage > Services.
Why not try Control Panel > Administative Tools > Services (that path is in one of the "Icons view")

Yeah, back up the zones key, just in case! then delete. Apparently something to do with Adobe Flash.

Thanks. I've deleted that folder, then restarted computer and now it works perfectly, there is no more problem with gadgets and ActiveX as well.

Your advise was really helpful.
Thank you very much once again and good luck.

[lang=sv]Jag har följt samma instruktioner men det fungerar ändå inte.
Dessutom fungerar inte genvägarna i dockningspanelen?
Tyvärr glömde jag att göra en backup... vad kan jag göra?[/lang]
