    Inactive widgets are the by-product of previously activated and then deactivated themes.

    You can either re-assign them to the new theme's sidebar or if they are no longer needed - delete them. Simply open each one of the widget in the inactive sidebar/widget area and click on delete to get rid of it.

    Or you can use this plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/remove-inactive-widgets/ - mind you, I've found it to have some side effects on other widgets but that was sometime ago. Deactivate it and/or delete it once used if you find the same.

    What do you mean by this? Does the theme register more than one sidebar or just one?
