My Computer empty and stuck searching,Control panel also empty,


  • We have a bunch of windows 7 computer (both 64 and 32bit) that are having issues with what seems like search. when a user clicks on "my computer" it turns up empty and is stuck searching. the green bar of boredom. also note that the control panel is also blank. we have run Microsoft Security Essentials and Vipre anti virus and nothing turns up. the issue seems to spread as more and more users are getting this issue. A reboot will solve the issue for a few minuets before the issue reoccurs.
