As a rule when the search box comes up, it means that you have saved searches. Read this and clear all saved searches.

I do have a Saved Search that keeps re-creating itself every time the pc awakes, even after I delete it. I thought that might be the problem. The name of it is "Indexed Locations". I also went into Indexing Options and deleted all indexing on the pc, but this Saved Search keeps showing up. How can I permanently delete this?

Unfortunately Logitech's 4.80 drivers cause lots of problems, so I didn't install them.

Here is a suggestion on how to delete searches
Clear Search Terms

I have found it to be good policy to make a system restore point prior to making any changes to the computer. 99% of the time this precaution is not needed, but you may be that 1%. Good luck

The decison is up to you. You can either take a chance and download the problem drivers (I would not), or have a mouse that does not wake the computer. You do not need the mouse, just tap the keyboard. Good luck

All I have under that registry key besides default is MRUListEx, whatever that is?

I am not sure of that entry. With the registry, the best rule is unless sure leave it alone; even if you saved the registry beforehand. I have seen too many problems.

Both my Bluetooth Keyboard and Bluetooth Mouse CANNOT wake up Windows 7 too. "Wake up system" are all ENABLED but the problem is NOT solved. Very disappointed with Windows 7.
