    Windows XP Pro SP3 fully updated

    When I initially click Start>Search>For Files or Folders... I get a blank pop-up window with nothing but just the Menu showing.
    Yet when I click be blank screen off and click Start>Search>For Files and Folders... a SECOND time, the pop-up screen comes up alright and it works perfectly.

    What could be causing this annoying behavior?

    Sounds like a language issue. "... be blank screen off ..." always requires
    a "second time" to understandand wtf you mean.

    Nothing is more annoying than such lack of language skills.

    What is it you don't understand? Haven't you got enough brains to work out a
    simple typing error? "be blank screen" should have been "the blank screen".
    You don't exactly require a Ph.D. in logical thinking to work this one out,
    do you? I am a touch typist and if I am not sitting right in front of the
    keyboard with my belly button in line with the H key, I can get quite a few
    things wrong as I do not tend to look either at the keyboard or at the
    screen as I am typing. More like looking at that bird hanging disrobed on
    the wall! ;-)

    As I was saying, the very first time I start a search I get a blank
    pop up screen. I x it off and start all over again. This time the search
    pop-up screen is normal and I can use it. For some reason, the first time I
    try to start a search for files and folders I ALWAYS get the blank pop-up
    search screen. I literally have to x that screen off and have a second go.
    This time everything is normal and everything works perfectly.

    Got it?!

    BUT have you got any SOLUTION for this behavior?

    Something Kelly suggests at her site might help.. Go to the following
    link, click "S" and scroll down to "Search - Doesn't Work".

    Yeah, "the blank screen off" makes perfect sense to you if you don't have
    any education.

    Can you borrow another cell for that vacuum in your skull. I said WHEN YOU
    CLICK THE BLANK SCREEN OFF.

    Does THAT make sense to you now? If not, I'd say the single cell between
    your ears must be defective.

    Why end your sentence a preposition in? ... and your caps-lock key is stuck,
    maybe that's your problem.

    Have you actually yet tried clicking "the blank screen on"? Of course you
    can say anything you want, but that won't help anyone solve your problem if
    you haven't actually tried to solve it yourself and continually whine on
    Usenet.
