Windows 7: Start Menu Search bug

Start Menu Search bug

Hi,

I've got a problem with search while using start menu. After typing something there is "See more results" link there, but I've got here one extra line under without any text --see pic.

When I click on it, start menu disappears, just like clicking outside.

Recently I've had to perform a repair install, but it's still there. It may be somehow set in registry, but I don't really know...

Do you have any idea how to get rid of it?

I'm not sure, but I think it appeared after applying these two reg files (for disabling / enabling libraries in windows 7).

Problem solved.

After removing all entries from [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\SearchExtensions] the start search now looks and works normally.
