Default Re: Windows XP Search not working

Try opening windows explorer (WinKey + E), then click the search button in the toolbar at the top.

Also, check:
Code:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
and see if there is a NoFind option. Make sure its set to 0, or just delete it. Also, if you installed windows desktop search, uninstall it by running this command:
Code:
%systemroot%\$NtUninstallKB940157$\spuninst\spuninst.exe
also, try re-registering... (you can skip jscript.dll since you already did that one)
Code:
regsvr32 C:\WINDOWS\srchasst\srchui.dll
regsvr32 wshom.ocx
regsvr32 jscript.dll
regsvr32 urlmon.dll
And reinstalling the srchasst.inf file might work.. IT should be located in C:\windows\inf - just right-click >> install

Last thing, open up TweakUI and goto the desktop tab, check the box for "Search results".
