    I'm running Windows XP Pro. I keep getting an error message saying: Windows desktop search tool tray administrstion, has encountered a problem. Sometimes I can get to leave for a few seconds , sometimes I can't even get it to gp away. I also am getting a small blue box on the bottom right that says: Windows is rebuilding index.
    Can someone help me ?????

    Brendan: Tried that,wouldnt let me. Said the patch package could not be opened. Verify that the patch package exists and that you can access it or contact the application to verify that it is a valid windows patch package
