    What are you seraching for? The box you are referring to, only searches on your open internet page and associated tabs.

    Hi,

    Pls see if Troubleshooting Windows Search & Indexing Errors helps you.

    Else try and rebuild search index as follows:

    Type Indexing Options in start search and hit Enter.

    Click on Advanced. Click on Rebuild. This will delete your existing index and re-build it afresh.

    Hope something helps.

    Sorry. Just read your post again. I thought you were referring to Internet Explorer! fwiw, I don't have a search box in Windows explorer, but I have the search functions disabled, which could well be the reason?

    1. For those of you who received (Not Responding) on your Windows Explorer a few seconds right after reboot I would like to share my past finding on an obviously a major bug in the lastest patch from Microsoft for Windows Vista.
    Well, if you have the same problem, here is what you can do ...
    1. boot system
    2. right click task bar as soon as system gets up and select Property
    3. On the Notification Area tab, unclick the "Clock"
    4. hit Ok and see if you can log off to save the changes
    5. when you get the system back up rename the timedate.cpl in
    %Windows root%\System32 folder to timedate-cpl.bad

    Good luck!
