Howdy! Calling all persons "good and true". When I boot my WinXP Home (with SP2) in Safe Mode and try the "Search" function, I get all options overlaid with a horrible crimson (or some other variant of red) band. I can barely make out what is displayed, for among my manifold failings is a colour vision defect (red-green deficiency) that makes me fail Ishihara's Colour Vision charts. By the ordeal doesnt end here, for when I click the "Search for Files and Folders" option, I get a display sans the entry box for the file name that has to be searched. I suspect this is the result of Microsoft's penchant for launching Platforms without working out possible snags and then addressing the lacunae through Service Packs that create more problems than they solve. Several searches over the Web have not yielded any solution. Can somebody out there help? I simply want an effective way to use the Search facility in Safe Mode, to locate Viruses and other malware that hide themselves in Normal booting.
