Wondering if anyone can help with this? I currently use Microsoft 7 Professional.
Very regularly I use the Microsoft icon in the bottom left corner of the screen to "Search Programs and Files".
For example I might search for the name "Spencer" knowing I have Word documents or emails involving that name.
Generally when I have searched I have got multiple "hits" and been able to find the precise document or email that I want.
Occasionally this Search function has not worked and I have shut down my PC and restarted it to find the problem solved.
However these past 2 days I get no results at all, not even the words "no results". Just a total blank.
Does anyone have any idea what is happening and how I can get this search function operative again please? I have been considering the free upgrade to Windows 10 but not bothered as everything has been working fine. Will an upgrade restore the search capability?
I am an IT novice and would welcome advice from anyone more competent.
I am also in Perth [north of river] and the guy I used as a PC consultant recently retired, so any recommendations as to a competent and reasonable replacement would be welcome... That can be by PM if you prefer.
