failing filename search

I try to search my documents folder for a filename but the windows vista search does not find the file despite the fact that I know and see that the file is there. it only search the string in contents of the files and return search results. I checked the search iptions in Folder Options in control panel but everything is OK.
I wonder what may be the problem!
