Hey, all, (my first post in this forum, wish me luck)... Well, I have this really annoying problem: After I first installed XP, I changed the Search (on Start Menu) properties, so this stupid puppy would stop bothering me, and let me search right away. Now, when I search, it doesn't search all the folders, and it finds only something like 5% of the things it should find. But what's even worse is that the "Preferences" button, which is supposed to allow me to return the "Search Companion" along with the "search all folder" preferences, is simply gone! I tried to mark everything at the search options under the "Search Now" button, but with no luck.... I've tried anything, (even Registry), but I just can't seem to understand where did this "Preferences" button go? Please please help, I use the search option a lot; It's a big part of my work. Thanks in advanced! Gal.
