Files or Folders

When I click on Start-Search-Files or Folders, nothing
happens. I know this used to work but I haven't tried it in a long time. I mean absolutely nothing happens.
I have HP Pavilion 6746C using ME.
Thanks for any help.

registry cleaner

I don't know what a registry cleaner is so I guess I have never used it. What should I use from this website and what does it do? I don't know much of the technical jargon.
Thank you.

But the fix may be because of some pest then. As to the fix, it's best we not do this if you don't feel comfortable with the reg fix.
