My Office Assistant is gone -- not just, hidden, completely gone. I noticed this today when I went to use MS Word, and got an error message that said, "The Office Assistant requires Microsoft Agent 2.0 or later." I searched for the agentsvr.exe, and I had it (actually two copies, since I was trying to backup files yesterday). I downloaded the link suggested here
, but when I installed it, nothing seemed to happen.
Computer: Dell Opti-Plex GX-260, with Windows XP Home Ed., Service Pack 2
Also, my Search for files and folders program (in the Start Menu, not the Search button found in My Computer or My Documents) isn't working. And my System Information in System Tools can't read any information.
