Win 7

Merlin2000 & Barman58, you two have been very helpful. I applaud you both. If it were not for the troubleshooting I too would not have been able to come out of this alive.

For those whom may bump into this thread, I had also done the cmd line suggestion Merlin2000 said.

The solution, repeated (credit given to poster in my link above), is:

- Click Start and in Accessories find the CommandPrompt (or click start and type cmd)
- Right click on the found CommandPrompt or cmd.exe and choose: 'Run as Administrator'
- Type the following commands (each line followed by the <enter> key)
CD \ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\
  icacls StartM~1 /setintegritylevel (CI)low
  CD Start Menu
  icacls Programs /setintegritylevel (CI)low
Good work guys. Keep up this great website as it helps so many people out. You guys deserve rewards.

Windows Seven Ultimate

(that's probably the file you have)

Have you tried the following?
Start, Run and then type:
regedit -s "C:\somePath\myRegFile.reg"
where you substitute the appropriate path
And for problems of Files look here
Default File Type Associations - Restore
Thanks for helpers!

Start Menu search programs and files not working
Just recently I have found that typing a program name into the start menu no longer returns the programs that match.

Start Menu Search - Programs, Files categories
I want to customize my start menu search. In Vista, I just told the indexing service to search only in the start menu folder, and monitored the folder myself (added and removed shortcuts as I wish). It was great, and it replaced Launchy very comfortably. I made shortcuts to folder locations on my...
