    What would cause the Search button on the Windows Explorer Tool bar not to function? I click and click and the Search window nevers opens. Is there something in Office 2007 that might cause this?

    Also, the Saerch short cut is missing from the Start Menu. As is the option in the Properties to view the Start Menu in any view other than the Classic Start Menu.

    Any ideas how to get the search functioning again? And how to return the short cut to the Start Menu?

    Why would the Help / Support short cut be missing form the Start Menu?
    How do I get this back in the menu?

    Windows XP Professional SP 3


    Thanks

    Here's a link to a very helpful site that several of us refer people to: Troubleshooting Windows XP, Tweaks and Fixes for Windows XP

    Check out line numbers 235 and 344 on the left side and see if either or both of them will help. (I usually prefer to download the file if it's a registry edit so I can look inside it before running to see what it's going to do!)

    Edited later: I meant to also say that I'm not sure if "fixing" help will also clear up your search problem, but if it doesn't she's got a number of tweaks in that same page that contain the word "search" so you should find repairs for both problems on Kelly's page.
