    I haven't found any info on this problem. When I search the Applications folder in the finder window for things over a certain file size, no apps show up as a result. I look for things over 10KB, yet still nothing appears. Apps otherwise show up fine in Spotlight.

    I have reindexed many times. Perhaps my app permissions are wrong? My apps are read/write by staff and read only for everyone. Should there be read/write access specified for System or Wheel?

    Thanks,
    Brandon

    System Preferences > Spotlight
    Is Applications checked?

    Spotlight is pretty dim, in my opinion.
