In System Preferences->Spotlight->Privacy drag the system HD (Macintosh HD by default) to the Privacy Panel and save the setting by quitting System Preferences; this removes the spotlight index from the system HD. Then do the same thing but remove that HD from the Privacy list by selecting that HD and pressing the - button and then save the setting by quitting; this tells Spotlight to re-index the HD. If all went correctly clicking on the Spotlight icon on the menu bar should tell you it's re-indexing. Then just wait until it's done; this can take a while.

Good Luck,
