Windows 7: Windows 7 search facility ==TOO QUICK !!!!

Windows 7 search facility ==TOO QUICK !!!!

Hi all
I actually DO like the Windows 7 search facility far better than the XP method -- but what I don't like is if I have search my computer and press say one letter S it starts searching BEFORE I have a chance to type the rest of the search or make a decent search query.

If You have a load of > 1TB drives plus a whole lot of network drives attached this can take a while to complete and return ZILLIONS of results.

It doesn't always stop by pressing the ESC key -- sometimes you have to do the ALT-CTRL-DEL trick which is a bit annoying.

Is there a way of making this search only work AFTER you've hit the enter key.

Cheers
jimbo

If you keep typing, it doesn't automatically update its search?

Hi,first post so go easy,You could open a sticky note and type the search word you want in there then copy and paste it to the search box,abit long winded but works well.
