Windows 7 search problem

Hi

I have a problem is the search in Win 7
In the past when I searched for files in the search window under Start I got a list of files with what I have searched for but at some point I stopeed get results instead I got list of types like : Files, Microsoft Office Outlook, Pictures and programs and when I choose one of them I get an error.

I tried recreate the indexing and change some settings in it but it doesn't help.

Any ideas ?

If haven't done it already make sure that indexing is started automatic in service. It takes a little while to rebuild your index. Once that is done. Start and type cmd/admin/sfc /scannow. It's a Windows system file checker.
