'A file that is required to run the search companion cannot be found'

I have messed around with my computer quite a lot whilst its been offline for a year or so:

NOTE: You must be logged on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group in order to perform this procedure.

Click Start , click Run , and then type the following command:

%systemroot%\inf

NOTE : There are no spaces at all in the preceding command line.

Click OK to open the INF folder.

Locate the file Srchasst.inf .

Right-click the file, and then click Install . This will reinstall the files that Search needs to proceed normally.

You may be asked to place your windows XP cd rom in the drive.
