When searching long lists here at Bleeping Computer I note that I cannot use the normal Windows search page facility, accessed by:

Click Edit
Click Find(on this page)... Ctrl+F

Do you have an alternative method or relevant software to overcome this please?

My OS is Windows XP SP3.

When I want to search a webpage...I just click Edit/Find On This Page...and enter the string I use.

Louis

Exactly what happens when you try that?

Thank you, I have now found corrupted files and cured the fault. :thumbsup: It was strange that it was only affecting
your board and two others.
