Search Companion Has Reverted To Old Search Results

Sep 3, 2005

My Search Companion now calls itself Search Results and does not offer to find Pictures, music, or video, Documents, etc. Also the animated assistant is not available nor is the change preferences option. I had a nasty virus attack and had to repair XP Pro. All else is repaired as far as I can tell, but this version of Search is not nearly as handy.

Pro - Search... Turning Off Search Of Zip Files

Mar 28, 2006

is there a way in Windows XP to turned off searching in *.zip during the Search command? I search multiple network drives serveral times a day for files and do not need to search in the *.zip files. By searching the *.zip files the time is greatly increased. When I had Windows 2000 the search would take about 1 minute (did not search *.zip files) and now in Windows XP the search takes over 12 and half minutes (1079 *.zip files)
I did a test by making all the *.zip hidden and did the search again - averaged about 59 seconds. Unforunately, I have to leave the *.zip files as not hidden.
Any ideas?

Cant Get Rid Of Power Search/Sir Search

Oct 7, 2003

when i was downloading a free screen saver i also got a "free" toolbar called Power Search and I keep getting redirected to Sir Search page, which may or may not allow me to surf where I want to go.

i used spyware and I have run AdAware (twice) and Spybot Search and Destroy and even Spyware Blaster. I have gone in to all the programs and tweaked the settings as much as I can on the free versions but nothing has removed them so far.

I have hidden the Power Search toolbar from view but it is still there. And it isn't listed in Add/Remove programs.

Is there a website somewhere that gives removal directions for this?

Search Function Won't Search

Jul 27, 2005

every time I entered a file name or search name in the box, the result came up instantly: "Searched, nothing found."

Actually, there was no time to conduct a search, the result showed up within a half second.

Meanwhile, I've tested by entering names of files that appear multiple times and I still get the same result instantly, "nothing found."

What can I do to correct or repair?

Search Is Gone

May 19, 2006

I've gone to;en-us;Q319949..and tried method 1, the problem is that I have SP2. tried method 2, that hotfix only works for no SP installed, and I have SP2, tried method 3, but since this is an IBM with a partition that stores the windows setup (instead of the cd that you loose in one month) so that doesn't work either.

Missing Components Or Contracted A Virus?

Aug 13, 2009

I ourchased this E-machines from a pawn shop about 2 months ago. Its about 6 years old. It's using Windows XP Home. I've had steady problems since day 1.
First, I cannot restore. It has no disc and Gateway will not let me buy a recovery disc, because the system is not in warranty. Second, I just bought a printer. I can't install the printer, because the Wizard keeps telling me the Print Spool isn't working. I can't turn it on. I go into MSconfig and it is checked, but it won't run.I also keep getting a window telling me some program is missing a dll. paretlogic/dll? I have no idea what the previous owner did to the thing and I can't even restore it to fix it. I've run a reg cleaner and that doesn't help either. What next? I just wanna use my printer.
