    Start Menu Search not working


    When I start my computer, my Start Menu Search sometimes gets stuck in a start up or searching loop.
    The start menu itself works if I am just using my mouse to click icons. The issue is hitting the Windows button on my keyboard and typing.

    What is strange is that when this happens, if I log out then log in again, it starts up fine. While this is a workaround, I would like to solve the problem that is causing the problem.

    I've tried re-indexing my entire computer based on a similar post I found here, but that did not work. Also - searching in a general Explorer window works fine showing the Windows Indexing does not appear to be the problem.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    I have the same issue. It just started yesterday, after working fine for the 8 days since my upgrade. Thank you for the work-around. Fixed me right up, for now, until we can find a real fix.
