Erase, delete, uninstall the sidebar? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can someone please tell me why I can't get rid of this stupid feature? What was the reasoning behind making it part of the OS, and having it on my computer in the first place? It is a horrible, useless feature. I hate it! I realize I can turn it off, and I did. I just wnat to know why it can not be uninstalled? Why could this have been an "add on" feature for people to install at a later time if they wished to do so? Why am I forced to see this retarded item when I fire up my computer for the first time? Please tell me that in the new version of windows I can completey remove the gadgets from my computer.

  •  Hi, I'd like to inform you that it's integrated into the operating system like Internet Explorer. We cannot uninstall it.
