While troubleshooting another issue, someone asked me to uninstall Windows Search (which I did)
that didn't fix the problem, so I reinstalled Windows Search... now it doesn't seem to find things at ALL anymore.
If I try to search the start bar for 'word' it shows me these blank icons that say 'programs' 'control panel' 'music' 'files'
If I click on that blank icon it gives me a yellow screen that says:
These files can't be opened
Your Internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened

with the amount of programs I have, searching the start bar was a great tool for me...
How do I get it to work right again?
