Windows 7 Search function displays no results (windows cannot access the specified device path or file) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently I had noticed that my search function was returning absolutely no results. I have tried re indexing, and many other things people have suggested online to no avail. Interestingly when I hit "See more results" I get the following error:

    search:query=(name of item I am searching for)

    Windows cannot access the specified device path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.

    This happens with EVERY search I try. Any help would be much appreciated!
