    All you need to do is type in your search criteria
    in the "Start Search" box located by clicking on
    the blue Vista start button.

    If you still wish to add Search to the Start Menu, see:

    Search link (present in the right-hand side of the Start menu) is removed
    when you install Windows Vista Service Pack 1. Also, the Search context menu
    item is removed.

    There are other ways to launch search. For more information, read this
    article.

    If you wish to restore the Start menu Search link, check this post for a
    registry edit.
