Search won't work etc.

  martjc 11:00 07 May 04

A recent problem: When I click [Start]/[Search] in XP I get nothing, the system locks up for a minute but cannot access search program.

I tried system restore, but could not use the existing restore points. Just got a message saying "Couldn't restore to that point, try another."

Have tried several with no success. Created a new point and can access it and the previous one but this does not help with the search problem.
Also, the machine won't follow the [Click here] links. It just sits there.
