View Full Version : Windows 2000 Search function not working

23-06-2005, 06:49 PM
I have no clue what just happened, but for some reason the 'search' function within Win2kPro (click start.. search or press F3) has suddenly stopped working. Making it even more interesting, the search function has also stopped working while in Internet Explorer (version 6). It worked yesterday though.
Anybody have any ideas? Feel free to email me if you have a solution.
Thank you.

Get hijackthis from here


Make a folder call it HJT and unzip this file into it. And do a scan and post the log here.

I wouldnt put your phone # in here. I doubt anyone in NZ will ring you.

And even tho you didnt leave your email, I wouldnt post that either. You'll get spammed.

As i have just installed it, and found it to be extremely useful, look at getting
google desktop search it indexes everything on your computer and works a lot faster than the windows search function.
