Search in win 7 does not work

I'm running Win 7 ultimate in a virtual machine under Parallels on an iMac. In general, everything is smoothly for more than a year. However, the search function of Windows 7 is completely dead. It is not serious what I get or what directory I am, Win 7 is not even start looking. If I try to add a supplementary search as a date criterion, it does not help, either. Is it necessary to activate it first in some way? I checked under default programs in Control Panel and Windows Search Explorer says "this program has all its faults." What I am doing wrong?


Have you made changes on the computer before this problem?
Your index requires virtually no maintenance. However, if the index find the files you know problems must be located in an indexed location, you might need to rebuild the index. This can take a long time to complete, so avoid this step unless you have given the index enough time (several hours) to correct the problems first. To rebuild the index:
Method 1:
a. open indexing and Search Options by clicking the Start button, click on the Control Panel, clicking system and Maintenance, and then clicking Indexing Options.
b. click Advanced Options, click the index settings tab and then click on rebuild. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
