Exclamation Internet Explorer 8 crashes Windows Vista Sidebar

After installed Internet Explorer 8 on my Windows Vista 64bit laptop my Vista Sidebar stopped working. The problem seems to be an XML or Java communication error with the sidebar after installing IE8.

Many people faced that problem after the IE8 installation on Windows Vista x64, following is the solution for that problem:
This behavior is observed if the XML registration is missing in the system. To fix the problem, use the following steps:
  • Close Windows Sidebar. To do so, right-click on the Sidebar icon in the Notification area and click Exit (if your sidebar crashes, or you do not see it at all, skip this step)
  • Open an elevated Command Prompt window. To do so, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
  • In the Command Prompt window, type the following and press ENTER:

    regsvr32 msxml3.dll

Similarly, run these commands:
regsvr32 scrrun.dll
regsvr32 jscript.dll
If the registration was successful, you'll see the message DllRegisterServer in <filename> succeeded for each command executed. Open Windows Sidebar (sidebar.exe) and check if the problem is resolved.
