search option missing from folders context menu in Vista after installing SP1

After installing SP1 for windows Vista the Search option in the Right -Click folders context menu has been removed.
To fix this go to the registry editor by typing Regedit into the search box of the start menu and then opening it.
Navigate to the following key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\find
In the right pane, Right-Click on LegacyDisable and Click Delete , Click Yes to confirm deletion.
Restart the computer and the Search option will be back.
