Anyone knows whether it's possible on Windows XP to use search in Windows Explorer (=F3) without the originating (file)server to activate the indexing service? And if yes, how.

Can't you disable indexing service?

(did not know that F3 in IE activates indexing service)

F3 activates search (and it's Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer, although it's basically the same program...) :P

Yes I can disable/enable indexing service, but if I do then I can't search, hence the above question
