Default Search gone from Start menu!

A friend of mine has is Search gone from the start menu...

Now, before anyone suggests Taskbar Properties, Start Menu, Advanced....

Its not there either!! No little checkbox!


Where could the search have gone? And how to get it back?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! ASAP!

Well I would double check Right clicking on the start menu > Properties > Start Menu > Customize > Advanced Tab > Click search.

If you really can't find it there, just open up my computer then at the top there should be a "Search" button.

Yeah, sorry I just had to suggest that again. I deal with people all the time who say they alreayd did something, but when I tell them to double check, it works.

I dont know man. Have you tried any 3rd party software yet?
