    I cannot use start/find. It shows the pop up window, but does not do the find. I also cannot use help, it will not index or search.

    there is a dll which is used to perform this function. It is
    ITIRCL.DLL. If it is missing or corrupt, you might have this problem.
    EDIT. You don't need to search in DOS. What was I thinking giving you those directions. Just go to Windows\system and look for the file ITIRCL.DLL You have a COMPAQ. Do you have the cabs on the hard drive?
    You may have to perform an extraction from pure DOS and I need you to tell me whether you have a source for this file on the Hard DRive. I know you don't have a regular install disk. Also, which version of 95 do you use?

    EDIT: I am at the Dll database to find more information on this file. I need to know which version of Internet Explorer you are using, please. This file is updated and is a part of Internet Explorer. Therefore you may have to repair IE if you have version 5 or greater. Possibly reinstall IE to either replace or re register this file. That may do it. But it all depends upon the version of IE you use.
