|I have two problems that I think are related, largely because they happened at the same time.|
First, "Search" has disappeared from the Start menu and from all context menus. Also, in WinExplore, the "Search" button does nothing.
Second, I cannot find the folder called "Local Settings" in my user folder. If I enter the path, I can get there and navigate fine. But there is no longer a click-able folder in Explore.
I did not install any updates other than virus definitions.
I installed a proxy bypass program called Hotspot but uninstalled it the same day.
Based on other posts here, these are the fixes I already tried:
regsvr32 jscript.dll, install
regsvr32 /i C:\Windows\Srchasst\srchui.dll, install
%systemroot%\inf, locate srchasst.inf and install
Are there any other fixes I should consider?
