I have a real problem with my PDA. Regrettably the battery went too low and the PDA was switched off. When I started to charge it, it started to boot and a window appeared with information that by pressing a functinal key PDA can be started in a Safe Mode. I pressed the key, but nothing happened for a long time, just a text "Today plugins and running programs will be closed" stayed on display. I decided to reset mechanically. This time I ignored the safe mode and PDA was started in normal mode.

But, ooops, there are no today plugins at all!!!! Even if I go to Settings/Today/Items, only the WM default plugins appear there, any of the later installed items can be seen here.

Memmaid can see all the installed plugins, but even if I turn them on, they do not appear on Today anymore.

It seems like all the later installed plugins are blocked somehow, but HOW and where can i restore them?

The "Safe Mode Boot" sounds like the Spb Pocket Plus feature. Do you have it installed? If yes, just soft reset the PDA and do not use safe mode.

Safe Mode is there as a feature to prevent programs that can cause problems to lockup the PDA on boot time. If nothing is wrong then you don't need t use Safe Mode Boot.

Yes, you are right, it is Spb Pocket Plus feature (I found it in the meantime). But something went wrong and although I restart in normal mode now, the today plugins are still invisible in Settings/Today/Items. Special programs like SKTools or MemMaid can see all installed plugins, but enabling does not work.

I found that the plugins are found at HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Today/Items. Could I adjust something in registry in order to make them visible again?

(I have tried to uninstall SPB Pocket Plus, but it did not help).
