My VISTA Search funtion deosnt seem to be very good. I dont recall having problems with it before, but i created a document yesterday and searched for it today - typed in the exact name and it did not show (i know it is correct name as i do actually know where it is!)
Why might this be? something to do with indexing!?
Well I don't know if this may help, click here I had a problem with constant disc thrashing and turned off the indexer. A couple of days ago I re enabled it back to Automatic. To be honest I did miss the instant search results. The disc thrashing seems to have stopped as well. I had read somewhere that it can get itself in a knot and disabling for a few boot cycles and then re enabling puts it right. I would try it. Vistas search is ( should be ) excellent. You can also manually rebuild the index but I would definitely try the above first. When you re enable it it will take a while to rebuild the full index again.
