Windows 7: My windows explorer no longer will search my current folder ... ?

My windows explorer no longer will search my current folder ... ?

I have this folder filled with files and subdirectories.
I want to do a simple search and have it list all the JPG images in the folder and subfolders.

In the past I simply put *.jpg in the search box.
But now its not giving me any results back.
When I go to the CMD prompt and type dir *.jpg /s there are a ton of jpg images.

Is there something I should reset in Windows Explorer?

If you have a tun of pics... Picasa is your best bet. Great at organizing images. As for Explorer.exe try resetting it. Right click the task bar \ Task Manager \ Processes. End Process on Explorer.exe. \ File \ New Task. Type Explorer.exe Hit enter.
