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).
