thanks Paul and I appreciate your time. Yes, there is Search on the Start menu, and it's exactly the same as the one when I go to Windows Explorer and click the search button across the top. With the same result!

Sorry Paul. You have left me behind now! All I know is that I use Windows XP Professional, 2002, with originally Service Pack 2 although I think (!) I have downloaded service Pack 3 now. Within Windows Explorer, I used to be able to click on the Search button along the top and it would work. Now it ...

Probably still running IE7 Paul. No questions asked, just type in the criterion for searching, and everything just hangs and eventually comes up 'search not responding'. Do you know anything about an outfit called regtool? Seems they can provide fixes, but tinkering with the registry is something I ...

PS Paul

I am not getting the funny message about illegal files, but as explained, just want to try to restore the search function in Windows Explorer.

Hi Paul. Thank you. I did the My Computer and right click on C drive and it does have Open as the top option. As to the rest, it is just a pain not to be able to search for files! sometimes I mislay one, and knowing its title - or at least partial title, it used to be good to do a search for that. N...

Hi Paul I was just reading this bit in your response ("I reckon you have had some form of nasty whose intention was to redirect your searches to their search and their ads (thereby earning them money). Only thing is that the nasty has been prevented from running by antivirus or antispyware but ...

Thanks Paul. I don't propose to tinker with the registry, thank you! Guess I will have to live with it for a while until I upgrade the pc. Bob.

By and large our adsl connection seems OK and fast enough (the basic speed is all I pay for). The oddity was after the last storm, when the analogue phone went totally dead on Saturday afternoon, but the adsl connection remained (and was good) until the following Tuesday afternoon before it all went...

windows XP and Windows Explorer Search

Don't know if anyone out there can help me but I have a problem with Windows Explorer Search. It just doesn't work! Used to be OK but recently when I click on Search everything just hangs. The problem of course is that it was bundled software. However, I did go legal and got from Microsoft their &qu...

I've been running AVG 9 for about a week now, and the only noticeable difference (apart from presentation of the functions) is in the siginificant saving of time on my weekly whole pc scan. Almost halved from the old version.

As usual, though, KEP was a complete waste of time. We went there first to find out what we needed for the new style reidence permit and they printed out a list for us which inclused all sorts of stuff (eg birth certificates - originals + translated into Greek + photocopies). A couple of points. We ...

I usually brown the meat first, unless I have had it marinating for a while, in which case I just chuck the meat and the marinade into the pot at the required point in the cooking process (curry or casserole). Always tastes great!

One of the problems with all of this election stuff is that legislation about to go through has been put on the back burner. Just when I wanted to make use of the car scrappage scheme which was within an ace of being passed!
