Good afternoon. When I try and use the Search Companion (Start, Search) and
enter the filename I am searching for and then click Search I get the
following error:

Search Companion
Unexpected Error
Action could not be completed.

That's it. That's all the info I get. Any idea what the problem might be?

Thanks very much.

Found the problem. This fixes it:

And I think it was because I didn't have Search Results ticked to show on
the desktop in TweakUI.

Thanks.
