Can't use Search or Help (XP sp2)
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.

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.
