Windows XP Search button does not work

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.general (More info?)

The search box comes up on the left side as it should but the box is empty
and all you see is the dog. What happened to the interface. This occurred
after having a virus cleaned from the computer. Also lost a sku011.cab file
which has been restored but has not corrected this problem only the Excel
problem.

    The problem you are describing sounds similar to this KB article
    "Several dialog boxes are blank"
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;831430

    Also -- this may or may not be related, as it doesn't specify that the
    search box is blank, however the steps for reinstalling search companing
    files are listed here:
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;319949#XSLTH3137121123120121120120

    Hope this helps.
