    File Search not working

    Hello;
    When I do a, Start>My Computer>Search and then choose to search for 'All
    files and folders" I get the following error;

    "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close etc, etc.
    When I select "Dont Send" the system places me back at the desktop. What is
    causing this error and how can I fix it? The rest of the system appears to
    work OK. Thanks for the help.

    Try reinstalling Search Assistant, go Start>Run and type

    %SYSTEMROOT%\Inf

    locate and right-click srchasst.inf and select Install.

    Re: File Search not working

    Thanks for responding. I located the file per your instructions, however,
    when I right click/install I am asked for a file named msgr3en.dll located
    on Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 CD, and to type the path where the
    file is located. I have the CD from Microsoft. (Also SP2 is installed on my
    system. ). What do I type/do now? Thanks.

    Did you install SP2 via an update, if so, the file is located at
    c:\windows\servicepackfiles\i386.

    Re: File Search not working

    Hello again;
    Yes I installed SP2 via an update and I found the file 'msgr3en.dll ' where
    you indicated. I loaded it, and was then asked for the file 'nls302.lex'
    which I could not find. Maybe I should try installing SP2 again since I have
    it on a separate disk provided by Microsoft. What do you think? Thanks.

    Use your XP setup CD when it asks for those files, if it complains about the
    CD is older than the windows version you are using, then you may have to
    create a Slipstream CD for XP with SP2.

    Re: File Search not working

    Thanks for the help William. I followed your advice and it appears as if I
    will have to use the slipstream procedure with XP Pro and SP2. It does not
    look too hairy. Adios my friend.
