Windows 7: Search box broken

29 Aug 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit
Search box broken


I recently installed a program that was able to change folder backgrounds but uninstalled it, and I think this is what has caused this problem:

Those same files show up no matter what I type in and they are all 0 bytes. If I right click one, Windows Explorer crashes.

Help please...

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, clean install, upgrade disc

Use system restore from about 3 or 4 days before you installed that program
