The BHO is enabled in IE, but using the shortcuts always brings up explorer search...

by (30 points)

Have you restarted the computer since enabling the Ctrl+F functionality? Is this Agent Ransack or FileLocator Pro?

Yes, I have restarted since. I am using Agent Ransack. The BHO is still enabled in IE.

Could this problem be due to the fact that I have added a reg entry to enable search item in context menu?
I added;
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\find]
"LegacyDisable"=-

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell\find]
"LegacyDisable"=-

so I could right-click and search a folder...

It shouldn't matter.

Please check that you've enabled 3rd party extensions in IE:

Enable third-party browser extensions

If that wasn't checked you'll need to reboot for the setting to take effect in Explorer (or manually shut-down ALL instances of Explorer using Task Manager).

Already checked.

Does it fail to load on all folders in Explorer or just some folders?
