  • You can delete the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FolderTypes\{ef87b4cb-f2ce-4785-8658-4ca6c63e38c6}.

    Microsoft has developed a hotfix to prevent this problem:

    The "Search programs and files" box does not display search results correctly in Windows 7 and in Windows 2008 R2
