    Default Sidebar.exe

    I'm not too sure how long it was like this,since I didn't look until today.My Windows Side Bar for Vista is showing up in my startup list as red.Has it listed as Search Centrix.

    Was expecting it to be yellow,where it could either be bad or good.The description doesn't have the two descriptions like it usually does,either.

    I wasn't too sure about putting this in the false positives forum,but I guess it fits.

    hi,

    the description on this has been changed so that Vista users need not be concerned anymore. I would be nice if you could confirm that the description is now properly displayed and fitting.

    thanks for reporting.

    I was searching for help on this topic too. Sidebar.exe still showing up as red and the description is still the same. I also found it interesting that teatimer.exe is in yellow color.

    hello,

    well the actual information on the startup entries has been updated within the database, unfortunately we have not uploaded this with the updates.

    We will catch up on this as soon as possible.

    Hi,

    My windows sidebar couldn't run anymore after installing spybot. During the installation, it prompted that sidebar will be disabled/closed (can't remember the exact wordings). After that my sidebar could not be ran. Why is it so??

    Please help urgently..thanks.
