Right click on the task bar and select properties, click on the start menu tab and then click on customize. At the bottom you'll see a button that says default settings, click that and it'll set everything in the start menu back to default.

Let me know if that doesn't work.

No, it does not work :/

Go to Control Panel\Programs and Features\Turn Windows features on or off, and enable Indexing service and Windows search
I managed to tweak it off too and it had me worried for a while ;)

edit: yeah, better late than never.. :)

Did you do it in the registry or through some tweaking program?

hmmmm, unfortunately, i created the account here just to say "THAT DIDN'T WORK FOR ME", even after i disabled those features n re-enabling them again, but didnt work,.....

I hope there is any other way to go around this problem
Thanks for all efforts though

Hi sakr232000 and Welcome to The Forum.

Did you re-boot in between the removal / adding?
