Microsoft Office search icons grayed out – fixed

Had a client that had an issue with Microsoft office 2010. They clicked into the search bar and the search tools in the ribbon showed up but were grayed out. It turned out to be a indexing issue. Here is how it was fixed.

Go under C:\\Windows\ProgramData\Microsoft\Search\Data\

Delete everything in here.
