Ditto Everything because it finds everything. Haven't found a better searcher.

I actually forgot about this bug until I recently stopped being able to find files that I was looking for. Then I was reminded of this bug and remembered that I had recently set up a Library.

I'm surprised this bug hasn't been addressed yet considering Libraries and Windows Search are two of the heralded features of Win7.

I'm having the same issue with the search thing and libraries that kensiko and gpzbc were talking about. Will it have a fix for this? Why a search can't work when we have libraries at start menu, but when we hit enter, it shows? it's a little annoying.. lol..
will google a little for it.. if I find something, I'll post it here..

Microsoft needs to come here. I sent the bug by the Windows report, but nothing.

Yeah, I find it odd that this hasn't been fixed yet since it involves two of their most touted features in windows 7. Weird.

I just came across this bug again as I reinstalled the Win7 operating system, and I'm amazed that it still hasn't been addressed.
