Seach not working

When I use search it goes through the motions of opening the search box ,allowing me to enter search terms, and start searching, but it will not find anything, even documents & files I know are there and I can find manually.

I have tried re-installing XP-- No difference--SFC /scannow-- No problems---scandisk /f- no difference. My next step wil be to format (which I don't want to do as it has taken me a while to get it exactly as I want it)

Before I go to the final step--any suggestions ?

The Windows search function is pretty poor. I like the Windows Desktop Search tool from click here You could also try either Google Desktop Search from click here or Copernic from click here
