When I search using Windows Explorer I get the following error message: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library -- This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.

Would anyone have any idea as to why I am having this problem?

Thanks,
yeto

Um, no. But I would suspect a corruption somewhere.
Open a Command Prompt (as Administrator) and run the command,
sfc /scannow

Hi,

I tried the sfc /scannow and it did not show any errors. I also installed the latest updates from MS. Would you have any other ideas I could try? Also, I am running Windows 7. Could this thread be moved to the Windows 7 forum?

The error occurs approx. 30 seconds into the search.

Thanks,
yeto

Try this search progam instead (it won't solve the problem, but will keep you going until a solution is found)

I don't know how this happened but under Windows Search Properties>Recovery>"Restart service after:" somehow was changed from 0 to 1. I changed it back to 0 and everything is now back to normal. Thanks to all who tried to help.
