    Default Start Menu Search not Working in windows 8

    Hi, guys

    I know this issue has probably come up many times before in this forums. I had the same issue occur last night and have been looking for a solution as well.

    My start menu "search programs and files" box isn't returning any results.
    I am using windows 8 beta 64 bit and the system is two months old.

    Anyone can help in this? many thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    you can have a try the search troubleshooter in the Control Panel. Set the "View" setting in the upper right corner of Control Panel to 'small icons', and then click "Troubleshooting". click "System and Security" in the list, and then see the 'Search and Indexing" to open that, and click the "Advanced" link to be sure to "run as administrator", and fix things automatically.

    Hope you can solve the Start Menu Search not working problem in windows 8 !
