Windows 7: Search Can't Find Any Files In Windows Explorer

Search Can't Find Any Files In Windows Explorer

When I type the name of a document, video, picture, mp3 or whatever else into the search in windows explorer and it can't find any of them, even if I open my library and am look right at it.

On a side note, I've had this computer for about 5 years now and I can remember before that the search worked just fine, but since then I've had to reinstall windows twice since then (long stories) and I don't quite remember when it stopped functioning correctly, but now I am just bound and determined to solve this problem. I searched around on google and tried running the windows search troubleshooter, but it found no problems.

If you need more details please ask, thanks
