Windows 7: Weird Index behaviour

Windows 7
Weird Index behaviour

OK - this is weird - or I'm just not looking at it right..

Have my Music Library set up - Folder in the library is not the default folder its another one that i've manually added..

If I search for a specific group - say Kraftwerk - I get all the music with said group. At this point I'm prompted to add the location to the Index to speed the search.. OK so lets do that..

Now repeat the search - no results.. Hmm OK - maybe the Index building process is a little slow - go away for 12hrs (assuming I can leave Windows 7 alone for that long) - come back repeat the search - nothing again.. Grr..

OK remove the folder from the Index - repeat the Search - now get all the music for Kraftwerk..

Bloody annoying...

thoughts ???

Windows 7 and PSU weird behaviour
Hi all I have recently moved from win xp to win 7 ultimate 64. Since then my power supply acts weirdly. Every now and then it makes a noise like its about to switch off, but nothing happens (nothing hangs, no blue screen etc.). So I ghosted back my old win xp and it worked without any noises...

Weird window behaviour?
I think that in Win 7 the windows behave in a weird way. I'm not sure, perhaps it's something to do with that aero functionality. I often click and drag, trying to adjust something with a slider, going back and forth several times to find the optimal value, or dragging layers up and down a list...
