Hello ive got a windows 7 desktop pc. and ive got my itunes library and some youtube videos on family videos also. They all work fine when playing, and some of them i know the file names. But when i go to my start menu, then to search programs and files, and when i type in a file or video name, I get the following message: No items match your search.

Is there any way to resolve this please? for some reason my pc cant find various files and I dont know why. its very annoying. Any help woud be much appreciated.

  1. Go to Start , Control Panel , Troubleshooting , Indexing Options.

  2. Click "Troubleshooting search and indexing".

  3. Follow the wizard to troubleshoot the issue. If still no good then

  4. Back to Indexing Options, click Advanced button.

  5. Click Rebuild button.
