Windows Sidebar crash problem

So I'm new to Vista, just upgraded from Windows XP Professional 32bit to Windows Vista Business 64bit.

So my Windows Sidebar was working fine until I tried to add one of the windows Gadgets (Calendar). Suddenly my Sidebar "Stopped Working"

Tried to reboot, the same thing happened right after I logged into windows.

Tried loading it from Startup Menu, same thing.

Copy pasted the spare Sidebar.exe from Windows\winsxs, same thing still happens.

Scoured the net for solutions but no one could answer.

Anyone can please help me on this? This is like the 3rd problem I've seen with Vista and I'm starting to see why people discouraged me to buy it.

Do you have IE8 RC1 installed? If so i belive this is probably your issue. If you have IE8 RC1 installed try uninstalling that and see if your freeze problems still continue.
