in your animated dog search window,
* click "change preferences" and select "Without an animated screen character"
*also click "change files and folders search behavior" and make sure that "advanced" is selected

that's really weird, try clicking "explore" and look if you have a file called autorun.inf on your hard drives and if you do, delete them. . make sure that hidden files and folders are shown in explorer option. did a virus make it unable to view hidden folders? then follow this guide

also, get rid of avast piece of shit and get something more normal. at least norton .. if you want to use an antivirus

those windows updates were crap anyways, the only thing you ever really needed is this fix

and what's even better, windows updates won't be even bothering your download bandwidth and memory as services=P
i run all of my xp machines with updates disabled and i couldn't be happier

1. I off the animated dog. Still main problem exists.
I want - Search-Search window (NO All files and folders)

2. I know that Explore solves problem. Del Autorun.inf does not help me.

3. Nice advice. Will follow. I DL the fix YOU stated.

TY, Russ.

AFAIK, this will not mean they will make all updates unavailable, only stop making new ones. I checked recently and WU still had updates for something as old and as unsupported as Windows 98SE.

I'm guessing he wants a Win9x style search tool.

but after you follow my advice on both of the options the search tool becomes the same as in windows 9x, except it's in the same window and doesn't pop up as a new one

The one built into Total Commander works almost like the 9x one (far as I remember it), plus a few improvements.
