I use WinXP SP2. In 'My Computer' when I click the folders taskbutton, I get a vertical folders pane on the left side showing folders (directories/drives, etc). Similarly when I click the Search taskbutton, I used to get a search dialog vertical pane instaed. Now I get only the small dog (or whatever it is called) wagging its tail at the bottom. How do I get back the original search dialog pane without re-installing the OS? BTW, Google desktop was installed by my son when I was away. He doesn't and I don't know if it disables the search pane.
