Windows 7: search is not showing the files i searched.

search is not showing the files i searched.

i was looking for a picture so i searched for it using Start > Search programs and files but it didn't return the file i was looking for so i tried looking for other things but still no results were found apparently only programs and OS stuff has results. i tried rebuilding the indexes and i tried not using indexes, but nothing changed. by the way, the search box next to the address bar is working.
