Hi

Try going into group policies, make sure "no search on start menu" is NOT configured. Also I do not have the NoResolveTrack entry in my registry, you could alter the value from 1 to 0. Please make a back up first......If no help try adding the Dword entry NoFind and set the value to 0
If these fail to resolve the problem, I would consider restoring to a restore point prior to this problem occuring.
