My Windows XP Pro Search function is working, however, when I exit the program "Search Results" remains in the task bar and will not close out. The only way to end this is by using the Task Manager. After ending the program with Task Manager some of the running programs originally on the Task Bar do not return. I am not sure whether this is a Search function or Task Manager problem. I have run System File Checker with no luck.

Island: You could try the "system file checker" Microsoft utility. This will check your Windows system files for fidelity. Here's how you do it: Start>programs>accessories>command prompt. You'll get a black screen with C:\>........type in "sfc /scannow". Make sure there's a space after "sfc". Click "enter". You'll be prompted to insert your OS disc. It will take a while to run, but if any of your system files are corrupted or damaged, it will fix them.
