Hi,
I have done something (added an unstable package, probably) that has made my help.search function not work. I was wondering if anyone could give me trouble-shooting advice to locate the problem so I don't need to reinstall everything from scratch.

I'm in Windows XP, R-2.6.0. The error code is below.

Thanks,
Elizabeth
