I was trying to do what you recommended guys, but like the dantevn I can't find this registry key. Windows is Home Premium x64...

Oh, I just spotted that the last post was in April but... 2011. I hope I won't be said to be a greatest digger If someone can help - it would be appreciated.

Or maybe you know any applications that can do a list of registry keys and any specialist will take a look at it?

Hello Piroozek, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before the issue started may be able to undo and fix it for you.

Hope this helps,

It's embarrasing but I put my post in the wrong topic... My problem was with Search option in the folders. But I finally also get rid of it :)

Change advanced indexing options

And now it works :)

So thanks for help, forgive for writing in wrong topic and hope to see ya later.
