For some reason my spotlight index is omitting Applications from its results. I've checked the preferences and Applications is checked to show. Its only just started doing it, done a reboot and still no joy.

Will I need to rebuild the index, or is there something I've missed? If not, then how do I rebuild without having to mess about in Terminal?
