Search issues in Windows 8 Pro

I have installed Windows 8 Pro. I am happy using it except for one major problem i.e. Search.

I am unable to search the files on my HDD!!! The apps, settings option does not appear under the search option in charm bar. Also in window explorer, there is no search option. If I go in right corner and go to search, I can search only the weather, bing, store, music, video, finance. There is no option to search app, settings which appears in other windows 8 machines. Also there is no search bar in the window explorer near the address bar.

How do I get Windows 8 to search my local files, apps and settings and also get search box in window explorer?

Issue resolved. This is apparently a glitch.

solution was to re-install the search options in Windows by going to programs and features / turn windows features on/off.

Got this solution on micosoft forum and it does work.
