    After doing some reading UAC seems to be affecting this so these steps may not be even needed if UAC is turned off or set to normal beforehand. I had already swapped my files before getting this info.

    If you turn UAC off, and sidebar still doesnt work, then this method will fix it.

    To take ownership of a file just right click the file and choose Properties.

    Go to the Security tab, click the Advanced button at the bottom, choose Owner tab next and then click the EDIT button. Highlight your account name and press Apply.

    Click the OK button 3 times leaving you at the file Properties box under Security tab where you started. Now, click Edit button, highlight your user name and check mark the Full Control, press OK, then press YES.

    All done, now repeat steps on all 4 files.

    there hasn't been a sidebar since well build 69xx the icons don't have a sidebar now. Closing thread. Upgrade to RTM or post a new thread and don't resurrect year old threads when RTM is out.
