    I'm running windows XP-home edition...with all current critical patches, etc.

    When clicking "All files and folders" over the !#$% little dog, the small white "enter" space opens up - but it's inactive, I cannot enter what I'm searching for.

    Please feel free to email me on this,

    MANY thanks,

    Nat

    try this

    Open Explorer and go to the c:\Windows\inf folder. Locate the srchasst.inf file. Right click it and select Install.

    You'll need your XP CD or the files from the i386 folder.
