    i dont like the current xp look of searching and finding files... is there a way for me to make it look like the classic look.. the rest of the xp look is ok..except for the search

    Look inside the preferences when you first hit the search window, you may find something in there that's more to your liking.

    (possibly try the "choose the default files and folders search behavior", and select the advanced option)

    Use Classic Search in Explorer

    Open regedit and navigate to:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CabinetState]

    Create a new STRING value called Use Search Asst and set its value to no.

    Or you could use Tweak UI for this. (See screendump)
