In Windows 7 (Professional 64-bit) my sidebar.exe will crash roughly every 10 hours and it has been doing this for about 7 month now (at least that is the earliest entry in the event log). I found this question which is similar, however, the fault module is different, I am not using the Win7 RC and I do not have a Logitech webcam.

While this does not impact my ability to use the computer at all, especially as the exe will immediately be restarted, it is annoying and any help resolving it is appreciated.
