Until a few weeks ago, my Windows XP search function worked just fine.
The little dog did his job for several years. Then, I noticed that
every time I entered a file name or search name in the box, the result
came up instantly: "Searched, nothing found."


Actually, there was no time to conduct a search, the result showed up
within a half second.


Meanwhile, I've tested by entering names of files that appear multiple
times and I still get the same result instantly, "nothing found."


What can I do to correct or repair?
