    Windows XP Pro: Click on Start, then Search and the standard search window for an internal search no longer apperars, but rather only an Interned search window. Where did my Search Window go and how do I recover it? Thanks.

    sdblouch, It wouldn't hurt to try this.

    Go to Start/Run and type in:

    regsvr32 /i shell32

    Click OK

    Restart your computer.

    Note that the spacing is important.
