    Yep.. Just uninstalled the update and the search is working again now. Should this be reported somewhere?

    I did have them all installed. But upon finding out KB2756872 was the cause of the problem I have uninstalled it until I can find a fix.

    EDIT: Also I think with this uninstalled it may stop other updates installing, giving an error. I saw somebody else who had a driver issue after the update and the only way was to revert. Now he is getting errors on later updates.

    Yes everything is working ok my end also, but it's a shame as that update contained performance improvements?? I'm going to put 7 back on this machine I think, until 8 SP1.

    Same problem for me, even if I unistalled that update, the problem is still there. When I try to search, it crashes both explorer.exe and WerFault.exe with a "memory can't be written" error. Any suggestions?

    KB2756872 ... This update screwed me up too. My search charm crashes and the "all apps" button crashes. I uninstalled this update and everything is back to normal. Has any one discovered why this is happening?
