My friend got his Vista machine just about a week ago and as usual, plays with the new side-bar gadgets. By 'accident' (according to him), he 'uninstalled' rather than 'closed' the weather gadget. He now regretted but nowhere to get it back!

Is there a way to reinstall the side-bar with all the gadgets?

Cheers

Download it from Here - MS Gadgets (http://vista.gallery.microsoft.com/vista/SideBar.aspx?mkt=en-us) - if you do a search in the box up top for Weather - it will bring up plenty to select from.

Have a go re-enabling the side-bar or adding back the gadget by going into Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Windows Sidebar Properties.

Problem is, his computer is with me and it's hard to get him to do the right thing over the phone. Will go to his place and try to fix it during the long weekend.

That doesnt make sense. If you've got the computer, whats the point in going to his place?

I'm terribly sorry, Speedy. It should be 'it is NOT with me.
