No matter what I type into the search box in the start menu, windows 7 search always returns "No items match your search." This happens even with things that I know for certain exist. (e.g. cmd, charmap, msconfig, dxdiag) What can I do to fix this?

Open the Control Panel and select Indexing Options.

 

Click on Advanced, then click on Rebuild.

 

If you are prompted for a password, enter yours.  If you do not have a password press Enter.

I am having this exact same issue. I've rebuilt the index, checked start_search in the registry, turned the search feature on and off, ran SFC, and antivirus comes up with nothing =\

Welp, I used a program called "combofix" which I found on here, and it fixed whatever was wrong, so there's that for anybody else having the issue

The successful use of ComboFix to resolve apparent system problems...indicates that the system is a victim of malware.

 

This forum does not deal with malware situations...and members are not advised to run ComboFix without guidance from the BC Malware Response Team.  The forum for malware situations that may be reflected in ComboFix and other malware tools designed to neutralize malware...would be  BC Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum22.html .

 

FWIW:  I would never run a tool like ComboFix on the advice/suggestion offered by anyone other than a BC MRT member.

I have rebuilt the index several dozen times until it says "indexing complete" but it still says "no items match your search" for cmd and all other system tools. what else can I do to get this to work because it refuses to show anything system related
