Windows 7: Outlook 2010: instant search stopped working

Outlook 2010: instant search stopped working

I've got Windows 7 HP x64 (Russian version) and had Office 2010 64x beta installed. But when I tried to add Visio, the installer complained to the wrong symbol in Common Files folder. To make a long story short - I had to move to 32-bit version and the old 64-bit couldn't be uninstalled properly (due to Common Files folder issue) - I simply used Windows Install Clean Up, deleted folders and installed the full 32-bit beta.
It works just fine, but the Windows search index for Outlook stopped updating, I see only old letters in the search results.

Obviously the service can't find the new Outlook installation (here's the screenshot of its settings), what can I do to fix it? Working without the search is really inconvenient. I've already rebuilt it and now search doesn't find mail at all.

Any help is welcome
