I hope someone can help me! :confused: My problem: in Windows ΥΠ the
"Help" is gone and instead of search panel (the menu "Search..." in
Start) the empty panel colored as my desktop theme appears, on which
there are no fields for input of parameters of search. Where the
problem can be? Also i shall say? that i don't use any Tweakers. A
problem basically not critical,for search it is possible to use FAR or
WINCMD, and also i don]t use "Help" at all. Simply it would be
desirable to understand what happend and how to solve the
problem...Such services as "Help and Support Service " works normally,
standard branches of the register responsible for this theme are on a
place-



[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerDesktopNameSpace
{1f4de370-d627-11d1-ba4f-00a0c91eedba}]
= " Computer Search Results Folder "

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerDesktopNameSpace
{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}]
= " "
" Removal Message " = " @mydocs.dll,-900 "

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerDesktopNameSpace
{e17d4fc0-5564-11d1-83f2-00a0c90dc849}]
= " Search Results Folder "

So I hope for your help!

If using the XP Start Menu...

Right click the Start button | Properties |
Start Menu tab | Customize button | Advanced tab |
Select: Help and Support | Select: Search |
OK | Apply | OK

If XP Pro...
You can use the Group Policy editor (Gpedit.msc) under the following
location to configure Start menu features:
User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Start Menu and Taskbar

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

The registry entries are DWORD values. A value of 1 is enabled, and a value
of 0 is disabled.

Policy: Remove Help item from Start Menu
Description: Removes the Help item from the Start menu, but does not disable
Help files from running.
Registry Value: "NoSMHelp"

Policy: Remove Search item from Start Menu
Description: Removes the Search item from the Start menu and disables some
Windows Explorer search elements.
Registry Value: "NoFind"

-----
Hint...

1. In the registry tree (on the left), click a registry key.
2. On the Edit menu, click Copy Key Name.
3. Paste the name of the registry key into another program or document.
