Today I installed Windows 7 service pack 1. After I restarted my machine, I noticed my search function from the start menu brings up 0 results. It's literally a white, blank area.
Some things I've tried after researching the problem;
-System restore - Hangs at initializing screen, so that's out of the question (and a whole new problem entirely)
-Checked under Right click start icon>properties> customize>made sure the right 'Search other files and libraries' options were checked.
- ran system file checker, found no 'violations'
-fix it tool from Microsoft (no problems found)
Another thing to add...if I click on 'See more results' I get the following error : Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated, because I love the search.
