problem with Search Assistant

I've just reinstalled XP but for some reason the "Rover" Search Assistant
isn't there; instead I just get a bland white search toolbar. And I can't
find any "Enable Search Assistant" option Also, if I DO use this search
toolbar it keeps searching even when I click "Stop search". It pauses for a
bout 5 seconds and then carries on searching.

Does Office/Word need to be installed before SA will appear? I've tried
every available tweak (from Kelly's korner and TweakXP.com) with no luck

Did you check "Change Preferences", that's where "with an animated screen
character" can be found.
