Windows 7: Is there a way to update the Windows Explorer search results?

Is there a way to update the Windows Explorer search results?

I was searching for a file, and the search results brought up several files with similar names. It showed one of the files as being in its old location (I had moved it to another folder more than a month ago). Is there a way to "update" or "refresh" the Windows Explorer search results so that it doesn't bring up old locations of files?
