Cloned OS disk to new, larger disk. Indexing won't run, Win won't sear

Take a slow read through this tutorial by Brink and see if it helps.
Also look at all the things at the bottom of the page and see if their is a subject that will help.

I would suggest going here and start a new thread because you have a Windows Update problem. That will make it easier for Update problem experts to find you.
