[15:00] - Search no longer showing auto-suggest.
That answer was bit of half-way IMO.
Both you said that it *used to work*. And then some obscure setting that controls it which you didn't know about has it (the partial match /auto-suggest) turned off.
So the obvious question is, who turned the setting off if you guys didn't know about it? This is obviously major user experience bug (unexpected changes in user experience that no automatic testing will ever catch in QA), almost the level of the issues in Vista, except in Vista there was no way to fix them. (and the Windows 7 fix that MS applied makes the explorer slow down little by little until it's unusably slow).
Anyway I'm not upgrading from Windows 7 too soon since after all these years I have finally found fixes to all the show stopping issues in Windows 7 (Aero frame rate perma-drop to 15 FPS and explorer slow down).
