Just recently I have found that typing a program name into the start menu no longer returns the programs that match. I tried to install a hotfix which didn't work (update not applicable to my computer). I've seen other posts about deleting a registry key, but I don't have that registry key in the first place. I've also rebuilt the search index with no success. Can anyone provide any other ideas for how to fix this as it's a real pain.
BTW, I can't be sure, but I believe the problem may have surfaced after installing Google Desktop Search.
