    When using Windows Explorer, and I want to search for a file, I would press the search button which would bring up a side-menu asking for the standard search information.

    Now when I press the search button, nothing happends. I don't have any idea why! I just used it a few times and then it dissapared. The button is still thair, it just doesnt do anything.

    :confused: Any help?

    (I doubt this is a bug so I've posted it here)

    A dos window pops up for a split second than disappears, too quickly to read. I have already used scandisk with no success.

    BTW: If it matters, I’m using WinXP Pro.
