sorry if I'm being thick (natural state for me I'm afraid) but could you explain a little better exactly what the problem is.

sorry barrie,
i'm using xp pro on a laptop. when I call up the search programme to look for a file/folder etc. a 'pane' appears, the little dog (companion) runs up, wags tail, but then nothing else in the voice bubble above. without the dialogue i can't search for anything...
any ideas?

Scroll down to learn about search companion there is a lot of info and a problem page.
If you can't get any joy from that use system restore or you can email for further help.

Sorry i forgot to say there is also a change preferences you will see this on scroll down.
