Hi listers,
Today, while working on a friend's laptop running Windows XP Service Pack 3, I 
noticed something that I hadn't seen before.  I had downloaded a file to her 
system, and belatedly it occurred to me that I didn't know where the downloaded 
file was placed.  So I opened the Start Menu and went into the Search sub-menu 
and clicked on Files and Folders.  Instead of the usual dialog, I got something 
that looked like a web page, and at the top of the page was a WDS logo. The 
page contained what appeared to be a web form into which you could input the 
desired filename, where it was believed to be located, where the search should 
take place, et cetera et cetera.  What is this page, where did it come from, 
and how does one restore the old-style search facility that comes stock with 
Windows XP? I'm really curious about this. Thanks in advance.
