Hi there

New PC, WinXP, has Office 97 installed etc, but Find Fast which is enabled seems unable to locate this file, despite the fact it is in its default location.

This is what appears everytime the PC is started.

15/03/2004, 5:56:11 p.m., A new session of Find Fast started.

C:\Program Files\Office 97\Office\Examples\SAMPLES.XLS, 15/03/2004, 5:56:27 p.m., Find Fast could not index the file 'C:\Program Files\Office 97\Office\Examples\SAMPLES.XLS.' To restart Find Fast, remove the file, and then double-click the Find Fast icon in the Windows Control Panel.

15/03/2004, 5:58:19 p.m., A new session of Find Fast has started.

Q1 - What use is Find Fast ?
Q2 - And what will I miss if I disable Find fast.

Thanks.... John.

disable it. all it does is slow your pc down.

Find fast for office 97 was more of a headache than it is useful, it slows dow your system, generates errors and causes windows to crash, the later versions in office 2000 and XP are a bit better but I still don't install it. Put your install cd back in and de-select the find fast feature to uninstall it.
