As a work around use the good and free search tool Agent Ransack:

Replace the functionality of "Search" with "Agent Ransack." Much faster and
more versatile.

Try this, you'll have to edit the registry

In regedit, Go to

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoFind

If "NoFind" has the value "01 00 00 00" change it to "00 00 00 00".

You will need to restart

Re: Windows Search not working Help !

One possible reason could be the lack of frequent Windows updates. Proceed to it as soon as possible, if you already didn't. That's the good news. One more possible reason caused that behavior could be a malware or, the worst scenario, a virus.

Anyway. You may try two things. Restore your system to a day that it worked properly, just the day before the problem occurred. If nothing changed, turn to virus confrontation.
