    Login your system using Administrator account and re-install the search assistant. Click the ‘Start’ button afterwards and select ‘Run’ option from the start menu. Type %systemroot%\inf into the ‘Open’ box inside the Run dialog box and press the ‘Enter’ key. Click the ‘OK’ button afterwards for opening up the INF folder. Browse through files available inside that folder and locate Srchasst.inf file. Then, right click on that file and wait until a menu pop up on the screen. Navigate through that menu and click the ‘Install’ option.
