Hi, After a recent fresh install and download of audio drivers i notice that when i go to Start-Search, no Search appears? Just the dog wagging his tail but nowhere to type in any info? Also, when i go to services, none appear, it just seems to hang... Any ideas at all please?

Sorry for that, it's just that i installed the first set and it didn't solve the problem so thought id try the next. Sorry for that, i am naive like that.

It is xp and i think the pc is 4 or 5 years old?
