Default Uninstalling Longhorn Sidebar

Hi all.

Just trying to uninstall Longhorn sidebar but it doesn't appear in my add/remove programs list. I located the folder in c:\windows\sidebar and deleted it. I had a white patch on my desktop (where the sidebar was) and even after restarting, it remained there (It isn't in my list of programs that load at startup).

I downloaded and installed it again with hopes that I'll find a way to actually uinstall it.

Thanks.

To get rid of that, using Windows XP, right click your desktop -> Choose Properties -> Click the Desktop tab click the Customize button at the bottom -> Click the Web tab and make sure all items in the list are disabled.
