I assume that you have done this - Tools - Instant Search - Search Options - Ticked all of the relevant folders.

What is your OS and have you ever had the search working?

OS is Win 7 Pro & yes it worked originally but I can figure out what stopped it or changed ?

Does the W7 search work ok as Outlook uses this?

Are any of your search folders corrupted or have odd data in them?

The clearfinder switch doesn't seem to be relevant. I'm stuck.
