hey, im having problems with my windows sidebar not starting up automatically during the boot. I checked to see if the sidebar was set to start at startup, but for some reason it still does not and the only way for me to start it would have to be done manually, is there any kind of fix for this?

Found this possible fix via Google:

-first click on the start button.
-start typing (windows sidebar) in the start search box. You should see WINDOWS SIDEBAR at the top of the menu.
-drag it on to the desktop.
-now click on the start menu and select computer
-then type STARTUP in the search box in the upper right hand corner.
-you should see the START UP folder below. select and open it.
-now drag the windows sidebar icon we placed on the desktop in to the startup folder.
-close and reboot
