Doesn't sound like you have a virus to me, it sounds like the Fixit was warning you about Sidebar.exe which runs at startup. It probably doesn't know what it is, so it's flagged it as a possible problem.

I'd forget about Fixit Utilities,until they bring out a version that supports Vista. The current version only supports W2K/XP.

If you want to stop programs from starting at boot, use msconfig.

but this fixit utilities was designed to run on vista you really think it would not recognize what the sidebar is

Fixit doesn't currently support Vista, I checked their website before I replied. As you've payed for it, I'd contact their support and let them know about the problem.
