I am running Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) with Office 2007. Computer has a Core2Duo processor with 8 GB memory.
Windows search is not working properly.
- A search in Word/Excel 2007 (when trying to open a file) does not display any results, only category headers under "Search again in". Only when selecting search again in "My Computer" will any files be displayed from the "My Documents" folder.
- Search in Outlook 2007 works fine.
- When using search from the "Start Menu", no files from "My Documents" folder will be displayed, but files from everywhere else will be shown. Doing the same search then by clicking on "My Computer", only the files from "My Documents" folder will be displayed.
I have tried the rebuilding the index, the hotfix, the registry change of "GroupBy" and the registry key deletions under [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows Search] with subsequent rebuilding of the Index. Nothing works.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
