Type the software name... Btw what software do you installed? – penreturns Jun 20 '12 at 8:07

Did you try to re-boot your pc and check for Ask Ubuntu Lens, if it doesn't work even after a reboot, Try to remove Ask Ubuntu Lens from Terminal and install it via the Terminal.

Try this with Terminal.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:askubuntu-tools/ppa

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install unity-lens-askubuntu

Further details on the installation are here - How do I install the Ask Ubuntu Unity Lens, and how do I use it?
