Now I can finally use the time tracker!

That was like a miracle medicine you gave my computer. Thank you very much Kaktussoft! What do you think might have caused the problem? Are there any more steps to be carried out?
exefile: runas and runasuser subkeys were wrong! runasuser was "visible" and it shouldn't (only with shift rightclick it should be visible). also runasuser subkey wasn't deletegated to another key, thats why it had the name runasuser in rightclickmenu.

All is fine now as far as exefile is concerned (and shortcuts to exe files).

check bat,cmd,msi as well please!!

Don't know what happened and what caused it. All problems solved as far as you can see?

I think I made your day!

You sure did! I was half-expecting that I would have to reinstall Windows when I came here, but what you did was amazing and really helped me out!

I checked bat, cmd and msi files as you said and everything seems to be working fine.

While I was searching for the files, I came across this.

That's weird because I don't remember seeing it before. It doesn't bother me much though because I can still use this search function when logged into administrator, and as Standard user the search function through explorer works. So far no other problems!

Don't understand it only doesn't work under that account? Or not under your account and some others? Under built-in admin it works withous issues.

If you search for *.exe it works?

Type very slowly... after you press * only something should be listed

Yes, only under that account it doesn't seem to work. I tested with other accounts and also new ones, and it worked correctly. Under built-in admin works without issues.

I'm getting the same message even after I type *.exe or any word, and press Enter or "See more results" option.

But if I type slowly, the list of items appears

I just found this: Windows could not start the Windows Search service on Local Computer - Microsoft Answers

I followed the steps given by Samhrutha G S and the search function issue is fixed.

Thanks again Kaktussoft! You just solved 6 of my problems in one shot and my computer feels perfect. Also got to learn many new things from you.

You added SetupCompletedSuccessfully in registry? Maybe there are more hidden problems on your pc!

SetupCompletedSuccessfully was present and its value was 1. I changed it to 0 and after restart it was 1 again, and the problem had gone.

I guess you're right! Maybe there are some more hidden problems. How can I check?

Thanks again!

SetupCompletedSuccessfully=1 is quite normally. 1 means True so windows search engine has been setup succesfully. Value is 1 on my machine as well. I think the value 0 triggered sort of windows search reinstall.

Hidden problems can be everywhere. Make backups regulary!

But a check for system files can be performed:
In Elevated Command Prompt:
Code:
sfc/scannow
