Vista sidebar.. working in xp?

  theDarkness 17:00 13 Jun 2008

I have an xp desktop and a vista laptop. I have no real problems with 32 bit vista, and all my xp programs now work fine after updating. Although I dislike the optional aero look of vista, I do like having the vista sidebar with its analogue clock and notepad. Has anyone managed to get the official vista sidebar running on xp? Searching around it seems most can get it going click here but it may not start up automatically on xp after booting up. Ive been using vista a while now, i know there are plenty of unofficial versions out there also for xp.. this is supposedly the best one and is freeware click here

thanks, that thoosje sidebar looks much better.. any chance someone could split it into 2 or 3 files for me to download..? Im on a mobile phone which tends to be a little unreliable! thanks if possible

Part 1. click here

Part 2. click here

Part 3. click here

Use €dstowe's Link from click here to put it back together, Use the "FFSJ-Lite" Program, It works.
