|I am not running WinXP at the present time but the process is to show the full path in the address box. You can change the setting by using folder options. Use any folder and browse the folder settings. I suggest you untick the bullet to hide file extensions for common file types. There is a setting to show the full path. Once you have made the changes there is an option to apply to all folders.|
After that is done the full path for any search should show. That way you will know where Windows is finding the listings. If I have forgotten any steps or you can't find those settings just use the help function to learn how to change the default settings.
