I am posting following instruction which you can sue the fix of yours.
  • You have to clean reboot your system. All the gadgets which are being displayed you have to click on the X button in order to remove the same from the Desktop.
  • Now you have to right click on the Desktop and go for View and simply uncheck the Show desktop gadgets checkbox.
  • You have right click on the Desktop and go for Gadgets. You have to right clikc on any gadget and select Install.

I was having the same problem which you mentioned in this particular thread. I have done little bit research work on this particular matter but finally I have managed to fix the problem of mine. Well I have to remove delete all the settings from the user app section of your computer. For eg your user name is Jon then simply move to ‘C:\Users\Jon\AppData\Local\Microsoft\’ location. Now you have to erase ‘Windows Sidebar´folder from the computer of yours. this particular step will remove all the gadget settings of yours.

Looking at the situation which you have provided I am suspecting that this particular problem is happening due to virus attack on the computer of yours. Well I recommend a good antivirus program which can fix the problem of yours. I think you should go for KIS 2011 for this particular matter. You should install and update with latest virus signature and run a scan on the computer. Once the process is gets completed you need to restart the computer. Let me know what results is generated after doing scanning.

I think this problem might be occurring due to compatibility issue between the applications which you have installed on the computer of yours. Well I am suggesting that you should try a clean boot your computer. Clean boot will help you to find out the application or program which is causing compatibility issue on the computer of yours. If this issue is not solved by clean boot then you need to contact Microsoft for this particular matter.
