Search option lost - WinXP (Search companion)

  swapper 21:47 03 Nov 2003

I have been using the "Start" - "Search" option quite often today looking for files etc.
Suddenly, when I try now I get a samll window appear saying "A file that is required to run "Search Companion " cannot be found, you may need to run "setup"When I click o.k. the search companion window opens but without any options.
When I go to "Start" "Run" and setup, I get another message asking me to go to the Control Panel to install and configur window components.
I have looked at this and cannot find anything relating to the search option :-(((
Any ideas anyone ...please
