Do You Only Get The Error Message When You Search For Something

Then Try Reinstalling Search Companion
Go To Start > Run > rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 srchasst.inf

One more piece of information I just learned. If I search for one letter I get a big list of files before I get error message. If I search for a file name I get error before the file is found. The time is about 2 or 3 seconds before I get error. After I click error box the desktop shuts down to wallpaper and then shows back up.

I could not find srchasst.inf. I have a srchasst.PNF When I click on it, box opens and says can't open.

wshom.ocx succeded

I still have the same search problem. Could it be a timing problem since it will run for a while then shuts everything down to the wallpaper and then loads desktop back.

Start > Run > regsvr32 /i %SystemRoot%\srchasst\srchui.dll

Classic Search Instead of XP Search
-------------------------------------------
Copy Everything from The Code Box And Paste In Notepad .. Save The Notepad As "csearch.reg" With Quotes. Then Right Click On "csearch.reg" And Choose "Merge"

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CabinetState]
"Use Search Asst1"=-
"Use Search Asst"="no"

Thanks a lot
Well you did it. It does not stop during a file search. I don't have the same search box but it works. The cute little dog is gone. Can you explain what you did?
