Search has unexpected error message

Running XP everything works well unless I want to search the drives for a file, folder, picture. Then I get "unexpected error Action could not be completed" (no code number given) message. Anyone know how to help me solve this one?

First try:

Start>Run>cmd [enter] [Command prompt opens]
regsvr32 jscript.dll [enter]
regsvr32 %Windir%\srchasst\srchui.dll [enter]

If that doesn't work, reinstall Search by
looking in the hidden Windows\inf folder for the srchasst.inf file, right-click and take Install.
