SEARCH PROGRAMS AND FILES" not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    "SEARCH PROGRAMS AND FILES" This doesNOTwork correctly in windows 7  and even after typing the perticular file name on the search bar it displays "some junk file unrelated files" which I know isTOTALLY WRONG !!!!!!!!!

    I have tried EVERYTHING possible as recommended, I have run
    Troubleshooting several times., I have rebuilt the Indexing, I have done more
    things than I can remember BUT stillNOTHING happens when I type in a
    common phrase which I KNOW is in my system, it STILL comes up"unrelated files and items which does notmatch my search" which is IMPOSSIBLE.
    I want it should search only perticular file like Word, Xel, PDF,PPT which I use more frequently on my system..


    NOW, can someone PLEASE HELP me to resolves this issue URGENTLY as I am
    working on a large Project and need to refer to other files etc !!!




    I notice that there are many, many other users with the SAME problem but
    no-one seems to have the RIGHT ANSWER or FIX ?????
