    1. Install Windows Script: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=c717d943-7e4b-4622-86eb-95a22b832caa&DisplayLang=en
    If that doesn't help...
    2. Go Start>Run, type in:
    cmd
    Click OK.

    Run following commands, hitting Enter after each one:
    regsvr32 jscript.dll
    regsvr32 vbscript.dll
    regsvr32 /i mshtml.dll

    Restart computer.

      I found this:
      Shut off indexing service (Right-click C:, choose Properties, unmark Allow Indexing services to index this disk for faster searching). Choose to affect C: and subfolders. When processing is finished try a new search.
