Nope.

Ran both. Still same thing. "A file that is required to run Search Companion cannont be found. You may need to run setup."

To reinstall the search assistant :


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

As I stated above, I don't have the cd that came with the computer. That's why I haven't gone that route.

The "symptoms" for what this hotfix are intended to fix do not match my problem.
