Search in XP doesn't work
Posted on 2006-05-18
I can't be the only one out there that this is happening to.
The search feature in XP doesn't work. I have this happen on older machines and brand new ones. All are running XP SP2.
When I either try to right-click on a folder and select search or run it from the start menu, the same thing happens. The search box starts to pop-up and then I either get an error that "Windows Explorer has encountered an error and needs to close" or the desktop disappears momentarily and then re-appears but with no search window. I did some research but the only thing I found was that I need to run a repair from the original installation disk. How could this be on a brand new machine? I gotta think something else is breking this.
Anyone have any ideas short of running a repair on all my XP workstations?
