SEARCH OF WINDOWS EXPLORER NOT WORKING CORRECTLY

When I perform a SEARCH in my computer using WINDOWS EXPLORER, if I search for: DWG2001145RevE will find 10 documents , which is fine, but... when I search only for the number part of this text, this is, I type only 2001145, then it will NOT find anything!!!. Why is this happening? As you can see it is not an indexing problem, meaning... the file DWG2001145RevE.pdf is in my computer and Windows Explorer can find it, but when I type only the number portion of the file name, it can not find it.... the same happen with many other files.... Does anyone has same problem?

When you are using partial search terms you are best to use the wildcards. ie '*'
You would probably get the same issue searching using 'wg' or 'rev', but you would probably find the file if you searched with 'dw' for instance.
Windows search looks for a filename matching your term. SO without wildcards it is looking for a filename that begins with '2001145'.
So if you want to search for a file name containing 2001145 somewhere in the name, then put the wildcard before and after and it will return all files with that number(or whatever other term you use) in it.

SOURCE: Windows Explorer Details View problems.

Usually, the view is determined by the type of files within the folder. For example, when you are in the My Music folder, the Details view gives you columns like "Artist" and "Album", etc, whereas the My Documents folder has the more generic "Name", "Size", etc.

However, if you right click upon any column header (that's where it says "Name" or whatever), a menu comes up that allows you to choose which columns are displayed. And once you change a particular folder to display, THAT folder will then display those columns until you remove them. But any other folder will default to back to the standard settings unless you manually change it yourself.

SOURCE: Windows Startup Error csrss.exe

Okay, we are going to try two things. If the first don't work go to the second.

1) First perform a search on your computer for the 'csrss.exe' file. If found, copy it and then paste it into your C:\windows\system32 folder.
That should do it.

2) If that don't do it or your search can't find it, then perform the following;

To scan and verify the versions of all the system files that Windows File Protection protects, use the System File Checker (Sfc.exe) tool together with the /scannow parameter. If the SFC.exe tool detects that such a file was overwritten, the SFC.exe tool retrieves the correct version of the file from the Dllcache folder or from the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

To run SFC, please follow these steps:

1. Click on Start > Run command prompt
2. Type SFC /scannow, and then press ENTER

Note: You may be asked for inset OS CD.


3. After finishing SFC, you may run CHKDSK C: /R in the Run command prompt as well.

Protect the privacy of your Explorer searches Note: This tip relies on the Group Policy Editor, which isn't available in some versions of Windows 7. Thus, this tip will not work if you have the Home Premium, Starter, or Home Basic editions of Windows 7.


When you search through your PC from Windows Explorer, you can see the most recent searches that have been performed. If you share a PC and don't want others to see what you've searched for, you can turn off the recent searches feature:

Select "Enabled" to protect search privacy.

1. In the Start menu's Search box, type GPEDIT.MSC and press Enter to launch the Group Policy Editor.

2. Go to User Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Windows Components --> Windows Explorer.

3. Double-click "Turn off display of recent search entries in the Windows Explorer search box" and select Enabled from the screen that appears. Then click OK. The recent searches feature will now be turned off.

I am unable to do a google search?


Internet Explorer comes preinstalled on most Windows-based computer systems.
If you use Internet Explorer, you may run into the issue where the Internet browser does not open for some reason when you attempt to access it.
Usually that's caused by a minor flaw in your computer, one you can correct without too much effort or time.

Run the anti-virus software you have on your computer and perform a full system scan. Sometimes if a virus or malware infects your computer, it blocks Internet Explorer from launching.
Once the scan has finished, remove any bugs or infections your software found on your computer and attempt to relaunch Internet Explorer.
Shut down the computer and restart it.
Sometimes just restarting the computer can correct any error you are having.

Click the "Start" button, followed by "Control Panel."
The Control Panel window will load with a variety of system icons. Select "System."

Select "System Update" and allow your computer to connect to the Internet (no browser is required) and Windows tells you if any updates for your system are available.
Install these updates and your issues with Internet Explorer may disappear.

Launch a different web browser (such as Firefox or Safari). Using one of these browsers, you can usually access the Internet; you could try to download an updated version of Internet Explorer to correct the older version that's not loading.

Turn Off Google's Safe Search
Google's preference page allows users to customize settings and options that help utilize searches to the viewer's needs.
One of those options is Google's filtering tool.
This tool contains three filtering options that will filter your results completely, with moderate safety, or it will not filter the search results at all.
Google's filtering preferences also filter and determine what kind of keywords and keyword phrases appear in the Google search bar.

Click on "Preferences" on the left side of the search bar of the Google Home Page.
You will be directed to Google's "Preferences" page.
Scroll down until you locate the "Safe Search Filtering" section of the page.
You will see three safe search options: "Use Strict Filtering," "Use Moderate Filtering," and "Do Not Filter My Search Results."
Click the "Do Not Filter My Search Results" option to check the option and click the "Save Preferences" button to save your changes.

How can I reinstal Windows Search and Windows Security Centre


Install Windows Security Center


Open Internet Explorer and navigate to the Microsoft Windows Update website.


Click the "Express" button on the main page to have your computer checked for important updates to be installed.


Since Windows Security Center is not installed, it will be detected and installed within the update.


Search the list of updates that will be installed on your Computer and deselect any options besides Windows Security Center that you don't want installed at this time.


Click "Install Updates" to begin the installation process.


Set your computer up for Automatic Updates to keep your computer up to date.

You can do so by clicking "Start" followed by "Control Panel."


Click "Automatic Updates" and select the recommended option.


Click "Apply" followed by "OK" to save the changes and exit the window.


Install Windows Security Center in Windows Vista


Click the "Start" button followed by "All Programs." Scroll through the list and select "Windows Update" from the available options. You can also type "Windows Update" in the search field followed by pressing "Enter" to access it immediately.


Click the "Change Settings" button in the left window pane.


Select the radio button next to "Automatically download and install updates."


Click "OK" when you have finished. Windows will begin to scan your computer and download the necessary updates, one of which will be Windows Security Center if it isn't available on your computer already. When the updates have finished installing, a bubble will pop up in your system tray telling you new updates have installed and your computer needs to be restarted.


Restart your computer and once you log back on to Windows, Security Center will be available. You can access it by clicking the "Start" button and typing "Windows Security Center" in the search field. It will also be available in the "All Programs" software list.


Reinstall Windows Search


If for some reason you've lost Windows Search from your computer, it is possible to reinstall it.

Reinstalling Windows Search will improve the performance and stability of your computer system's indexer.


It will allow you to sort and group results in Windows Explorer more quickly, and will improve the indexing of your online email.


It expands your system's ability to do fast remote queries of file shares, including on Windows XP and Server 2003.

It automatically indexes shared folders and contains improvements in previews for earlier supported operating systems (Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP).


When you type a search term into Windows Search, the results appear quickly.

This is also true for information from emails and their attachments.



Download and install Windows Search on your computer.

Click Start > Control Panel > Add Remove Programs > then click on Add remove windows components > search for "Internet Explorer" it will have a no tick mark in front of it. now "Tick" (select) it and press Next this will install your internet explorer to your windows. now reboot your Computer.
