I've been going through a virus/malware cleanse in the last few days with another member here. After we got the computer un-infected, my Windows Sidebar will not display any of the gadgets correctly. They all have white screens instead of the proper picture or information. I've tried using these commands in the command prompt:

Regsvr32 atl.dll [enter]
Regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\sbdrop.dll" [enter]
Regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\wlsrvc.dll" [enter]

Nothing has seemed to fix it. Thanks in advance for any help!
