    Apps are not appearing in Windows Search

    While using windows search, the apps don't appear in the search results even though all folders of the ProgramData folder are indexed. Could it be a problem with my newly installed antivirus (ESSET NOD 32) ? Please help me since it is very annoying having to scroll through the entire apps list.
