Win2k can not search files and folders.
Posted on 2003-10-22
Hi all! I’m new to this so I guess I’ll just jump right in. I’m sure you guys will let me know if I’m posting wrongly.
I am running win2k on a PIII. I recently backed up all system and registry files using windows backup wizard. Later I used a 3rd party uninstall program to remove a program, which, after rebooting put me in a safe mode like VGA screen. I imagine the program removed needed drivers.
I ran restore wizard and most things are fixed. However, now when I try to do a search using start | search | files and folders, nothing happens. I ran emergency repair from windows bootable cd with fast repair but still no search ability (search | internet works).
I do not wish to install windows over top.
