I have an office network of 6 computers or so running Windows XP.
Sporatically 3 of them now will not perform search. They will start up the search program, but they will run and run and never find anything,
even if I search the exact file name in the same directory as it is located.
I have run all the windows updates and I have all of the Norton anti-virus updates installed. I have run adware removal of both Spybot and adaware to no avail.
I HAD a svchost malware last week which I removed with adaware, but it is now gone.
Search won't work on any of the 3 computers, frankly I am stumped. I would do a reinstall of windows, but there is lots of data and my boss is fearful and doesn't want me to reinstall windows.
Help is most appreciated.
at my Wit's end,
