SharePoint 2010 Search yields no results

When performing a seach in SharePoint, no results are found. However, the search crawler must be working because when logged in with an account that has elevated priviledges, results are returned. Seems to not work just for standard users - no error messages given, just no search results. Standard users are able to access all content, including those that should come up in the search results - they can read and edit content. The only thing they can't seem to do is search for it. I can't find anything that gives special "search priviledges" to users.

Try adding your Search service account to the Pre-Windows 2000 active directory security group.  Then run another full crawl.

were the users added after the first full crawl? Also do you have incremental crawls running on the content?

The solution that worked was simply re-doing the security for the users - removing their access and then re-granting them access.

Solution worked but the cause of the issue is still a mystery.
