Just in passing, you might investigate two very nice "search folders and files" replacements for Windows Search:
(1) Search My Files
which is an "on demand" search tool, where you define your search criteria each time you want to do a search. It also allows search based on text or binary file contents, not just file names.
which is an always-running tool which builds an index of every folder/file on your system (subject to setup configuration options), with the index continuously updated any time a new file is created, deleted, or modified. It thus supports "instant" file name search (including the expected wildcards, etc.) as you type what you're looking for, based on this always up-to-date index.
I think you'll find both of these products much more user-friendly and intuitive than Windows Search. Furthermore, Search My Files can do things that Windows Search cannot do, because of its extensive optional search criteria variables.
