Windows – Search Companion cannot be found.

June 14, 2007

You may have encountered an issue when your Start => Search => Popss… an error “A file that is required to run Search Companion cannot be found. You may need to run setup.”

Search Companion Missing

Here would be the solutions for the error message as per displayed.

What’s the route caused?
Spyware
BHO
Windows Components which might be corrupted.

No worries, here you go. It works for me.

Solution
Navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Explorer\CabinetState folder.

Go to: Edit>New>String Value.

Right-click the newly created key and rename it to “use search asst” without quotation marks. Click OK.

Double-click the new “use search asst” key and type “no” in the Value data field. Do not use quotation marks.

Close the registry editor.

This is a screenshot showing the subkey named “use search asst” and its value of “no”.

This would be how it looks like.

Restart the computer and see if the Search Menu works for your computer.

This image might be resourceful for you readers out there… especially to those which would like to have a road trip using public transport in malaysia….

… i personally do have experience on all the public transport since i am working in KL…. i felt that it’s kind of convenient but at times, you would really need to suffer from the hectic schedule with those pack pack trains which were filled with all sort of people….

… n beware there are plenty of pick pockets around…..

…. i would give ERL the highest vote for it’s service while StarLRT goes for 2nd….

“I am happy to hear the news from Abdullah himself and wish him and his bride to be blessed with all happiness,” the MIC president said in a statement.

From this day forward
You shall not walk alone.
Her heart will be your shelter,
And her arms will be your home.

the valley does not make
the mountain less, but more;
and the valley is more a valley because
it has a mountain towering over it

CISCO VPN – Stubborn Application Unable to Remove

June 5, 2007

I installed the (vpnclient-win-msi-4[1][1].6.04.0043-k9.exe) on my XP
pro SP2 today and all my problems started.

First off, I had SecureRemote which is another VPN installed at the
time. So when the install of the Cisco was almost done, I got a blue
screen and CRASH.

When restarted, it said there was some new hardware which had to do
with SecureRemote freaking out due to the new vpn, I uninstalled
SecureRemote and disabled its “hardware” and tried to reinstall the
Cisco client.

Now every time I try to install it says that “Another version of this
product is already installed …” So it says that it will be removed
and the PC has to be restarted. Well I hit okay and restart the PC. On
restart, the install comes up and gives me the same damned message.

There is no trace of Cisco in Add/Remove programs. I have followed the
manual uninstall and removed all the oemX.inf files and still get the
same problem.

Solution
Okay so in case anyone has this probelm I finally resolved it.

I basically went throught the registry (highlight My Computer first)
and did a search for the word Cisco and removed every instance of it I
could find. There was the InstallService which it would not let me
remove but everything else is gone.

Then I removed all the more recently created oemX.int and oem.pnf files
Also removed /windows/system32/drives/dne200.ddl
And /windows/system32/dne
I also removed anything it had put into
Startmenu/programs/Alluser/startup
Also removed the stuff in the temp folder

So the combonation of all that is what really got it done.

Now its installed and happy. I hope that helps some poor soul save the
day I just wasted some day
