Start menu search problem

I've had this weird problem ever since i reinstalled Windows 7 some weeks ago. If I search after a program in the start menu search bar, it'll find anything but program-files.
E.g. searching for "notepad" will bring back pictures with notepad in name, readme-files, logfiles from messenger where notepad have been mentioned etc. - Just not the program itself. And it's like this with every program I search for.
I don't really need the searchbar to search through my logfiles or pictures - I'd rather it didn't. I only need the program-search (which apparently doesn't work).:(
- Help anyone?
