Windows 7: Windows search

Windows search

When I search I wish the search to include ALL directories (including, for example, drivers) and all files under C:. I realize that the entire computer is not indexed and that is fine since most times I do not need the result right that moment. Is there a way to reset the Windows search default in this way?
