Instant Search not working!

My instant search into the start menu is not showing the results.
As you can see in the print screens

1st Im going to show that I have TeamViewer into the start menu...




Now Lets search for it:



We got nothing... What about search more?



There we have all the results.... I dont know what to do... I already checked the index places and reseated the index storage and got nothing...
Thanks

Yes it does... all programs and files! Teamviewer is just one example

How is the Indexing options setup? Screen shot of it would be helpful.

Can you reset the index back to default locations and rebuild it, then reboot?

Run sfc /scannow at an elevated command prompt to see if any corrupt system files can be fixed.

I had this problem once because I unchecked the 'Search with public folders' option (customize start menu via right clicking the taskbar).
