Hi All,

Let me inform you first about what ive already tried:

1. Changed indexing folder
2. Rebuilding
3. Googleing
4. Searching this forum
5. Restarted Windows Search service
6. Removed shareing for Users folder
6. Ensured all folders i want indexed have System security on it with Read/Write access.
7. System restore

Nothing seems to be working.

Its been a problem for about 3-4 weeks now and of course i restart my laptop every few days.

When i search, it only searches Program Files and Control Panel.

Below is a screenshot of what i mean.

It has worked in the past. For example my Music folder has about 14000 files. I clearly type in ‘Don’t Stop’ and it doesn’t find it.
