Hello friends. Write to the start menu the name of a program, file or folder and confirm your search is the same on both Windows Vista and 7. For several days, do not look option programs and files from the start menu. Aat what time I type search for "Safari", e.g. find what I pictured. When I click on "Programs", which is underlined as a hyperlink. Follow the recommendations on security in internet options, but remains the same. I do not imagine that's the trouble. Neither are in the start menu search applications such as cmd and regedit. This happens just in the start menu and the searches from windows explorer performed. In indexing options when I selected index rebuild, however it did not work. I checked with Kaspersky anti-virus 8 for Windows 7 and Nod32 and found no spyware, worm or similar. All I bear in mind having done is the usual: deleting temporary files, make use of CCleaner on the way to clean registry and browsing history, Tuneup Utilities 2009. The latest program I installed was Visual Studio 2010 Beta 2, however after the searches were made in the start menu. I assume there is a customized value in regedit. A few months ago did the similar and I resolved it by reinstalling Windows 7, but lost all updates. Who can help me It is tedious having to scroll through all the programs to find the one I want. thank you in advance for any suggestion.
