Windows 7: Windows search question

Windows search question


I have a question about the windows search. (in start menu)

- when I search for let's say 'log' to find 'event logs' why do I see in the search results things like: 'windows card space', 'create an account' etc.
it's makes a mess and has nothing to do with my search term.

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, clean install, upgrade disc

The word log probably appears in those documents

Its best to be specific. Windows Log etc.
