    Can't use Search or Help (XP sp2)

    Hi,
    I just cleaned up a nasty little hijack virus called Vundo. I used hijackthis and CleanUP which SEEMS to have done the job. I'm a little suspicious as my operating system is still running slowly. Worse, Windows' Search function doesn't respond in any way whether I use the log key + F or go through the Start button. I also get no response from Help. I can't double click on MP3 files in Windows Explorer and bring up Winamp, though I can drag them there and/or can right click and use "Open With."

    To start with, can anyone suggest how I might turn my Search and Help features back on? Any other advice or suggestion is welcomed.

    TIA,
    RR

    Before you try anything to fix Search and Help, I'd suggest you see <post#=385,669>post 385,669</post: > on Spyware detection and removal. You need to ensure that your PC is not infected. Tehn you might want to consider a repair install of XP.
