tidbit:windows:reset and re-validate windows registry and system files

After recent virus attack, I suddenly lost windows search on outlook 2007. I tried many things - reinstalled windows search 4.0, upgraded to Outlook 2010, rebuild indexes - not much help.

When looking after the solution, I have found advice to execute "sfc /scannow" -

This will scan the system files looking for error and will automatically repair or replace any corrupted files. 

This actually helped and now I have search functionality restored.
