    Hi Gang,

    When I try to search my computer, any part of my computer, the search module seems to stall. That is, it doesn't appear to be doing anything for anywhere between 10-30 seconds. After this time the meter starts working and the word "searching" comes up on the search box.

    There seems to be a long delay between the time I give the order to search, and the time the search command is actually executed.

    What can I do to eliminate this delay?

    I have WinXP Pro SP2
