    if i type in spotlight, safari for example, you would normally get safari right?
    here is what im getting.

    along with searching for disk utility.
    try it, you will get the actual application and all i get in random garbage.

    I'd say try using a third party maintenance tool such as Onyx for Mac to rebuild your spotlight database.

    downloaded onyz, and it was verifying my start up volume and it froze.
    restarted computer and spotlight re indexed by it self and its working perfect now.

    onyx is pretty cool.
