    XP Pro - latest MS service pack and patches.
    Tried using the file search tool and nothing pops up for a very long time. Then once it does, it seems buggy. No more little dog reading the book either.

    Anyone have this problem? Is this a virus?:dunno:

    Using AVAST and Kilbytes. Nothing found.

    The dog died. It happens..........


    Did you install any kind of search toolbar?
    If you have 'Tweak UI' try switching to classic search and see if that works.

    You can reinstall the search assistant but you'll need your Windows CD.
    Go to C:\WINNT\inf
    Right click on srchasst.inf
    Select 'Install'
