If someone can come up with a fix that'd be great.. Thanks!

My reply is not meant to be a solution to your problem.
It is just a reminder of an old warning pertaining to the security risks of using sidebar gadgets.
Whether you choose to heed the warning or not is entirely your call.

OK, i think there is ini file problem your can try this. Navigate to

C:\Users\(Your user name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar

Copy the Settings.ini to another location so if this doesn't work, you can copy it back. Now delete the .ini file. reboot and see if that helps. i hope your problem is solve after this.
