Outlook will not find any items in any of the search boxes (email, calendar, people, etc.) unless I run it in Safe mode. It immediately gives the message 'We couldn't find what you were looking for.' without a delay, even if there is an item with the search phrase visible.
I am running MS Office Standard 2013 on a fresh install of Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 64 Bit. Indexing Options say Indexing complete with >162,000 items. I have tried; rebuilding the index multiple times, disabling all Outlook add-ins, installing & reinstalling Windows Search in programs & features, ensuring my user account has proper permissions, and repairing my .pst file.
In either normal or safe mode, the Window Search Email Indexer COM Add-In is unchecked. If I try to check it and restart, it will not start. When I do run Outlook in safe mode, it asks me to choose a profile and I select the default that comes up. I do have an exchange server account and am using cached exchange mode.
I can't figure this out and would appreciate any help.
