    Problem now solved:

    Recently, my computer started running "Windows Search" and it used to start right out with "Windows Companion" when I hit "Control-F" to search for something.

    I find "Windows Search" completely worthless and just a needless additional mouseclick to replace it with "Windows Companion".

    Is there a way to get this back the way it used to be?

    Thanks

    I found a fix with a Google search. It involves a change in the registry but was easy and solved the problem.

    I searched "how to set windows companion as default" and there is a lot of info there. Must be a common problem.
