Hi AR4SH,

You can try turning off Windows Search then re-activating it.

Go to Control Panel -> Programs -> Turn Windows features on or off, then de-select Windows Search. This will remove the Search function, you can then re-select and see if that helps, normally it resets & fixes issues.

You may need to restart after removing Windows Search, same again after re-selecting it


Hope this helps

Yes, I believe it has.

My suggestion for the thread author is to just reinstall but instead of 7000, get the Windows 7 RC copy before they stop allowing downloads for it, on the 20th.
