    I occasionally search my drives using Windows Explorer. When I click
    [Ctrl]F 'Windows Search' pops up. As I have indexing off, this is of no
    use to me. At the bottom of the panel is a link to 'Search Companion'
    which I can use.

    How do I get 'Windows Explorer' to ignore 'Windows Search' and go
    straight to 'Search Companion' ?

    The quickest way would be to format your hard drive.
