"All My Files" in Finder of Lion has stopped working.enter image description here

I suspect that this has happened after installing Path Finder 5.7.8.

I suspect you are correct regarding Path Finder being the culprit :). Cocoatech's Path Finder Changelog lists this in it's most recent version (5.8.8):

Fixed All Files search item in Lion and other saved searches.

Updating Path Finder should resolve this issue.

The changelog says 5.8.8 is the latest version, yet the download link, and the OP says 5.7.8. I'm terribly confused and I suspect a typo somewhere. Regardless, the answer to this question is: Update Path Finder, if not now, then whenever it is available. – Jason Salaz Sep 9 '11 at 21:19
