My Start menu used to have a search function which is GONE now. Also, every folder USED to have a search function in the top right corner and THAT is gone too. Windows 7. Any way to get this back???

Uh... screenshot please?

EDIT: in the mean time there's two things that may work
  • Go to Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> Add/Remove Windows Features (left panel) -> Check "Windows Search"
  • Repair install Windows 7

Looks like your first tip paid off. I was messing around in there turning things off and on.

You need a screenshot of a missing search bar?? :D :D

Have you checked that your system not get corrupted?
Otherwise you also try to restore your setting options in Control Panel to get the Search option back.
