Windows Vista search files

I have Windows Vista Home Edition, SP2.  Since four of the eight, 50 per cent, the files are empty, the following files in the folder of eight Research can be deleted?  Everywhere: (there are more results won't hold in this view.)  Refine your results with the search box or click to see all results...) ; Indexed locations: (too many to count.  Range of dates: 02/11/2006 through 22/01/2012); Recent documents: (16 inputs); Recent email: (empty); Recent music: (empty); Recent photos and videos: (empty); Recently changed: (18 entries); Shared by me: (empty).  I used PC since early 1987 with D.O.S. and I've never had a problem located a file.  Thank you, Eleanor

Search folders are just links to the underlying files. If you delete a file in a search folder, it has the same effect as delete the file itself. You can delete records if you wish.

  • How can I stop Windows Vista Search Results including files that have already been deleted?

    I use Windows Vista Home Premium Version 6.0.  When I use the windows search feature (navigate from the 'new' start icon) search results include files that have been deleted.  This is quite annoying because it dilutes the value of the search result.

    Does anyone have a solution to this?  I have seen similar posts but no real solutions... any help would be much appreciated!  THX

  • Windows Vista search refuses to repair

    I have instructed the system to reset to default index locations and then indexing will not start, checked services are defined on such automatic suggested elsewhere on similar luck thread.  I get an error code 2147218141, which seems to lead nowhere I tried all the different solutions that I can find here, and nothing works. I cannot search for files, or even search for the specific e-mail message in Outlook 2007. It is exceedingly frustrating. I am running Vista Home Premium SP2 with all current updates. Help, please!

    It's my advice in my previous reply to you:

    "If you read the update information install I you provided to see what Service Pack you have installed."

    What is installed cannot be higher that what is on the disk.

    Did you get this information? »

    You checked, but did not follow the rest of the information on the link I gave you.

    Your answer me;

    "The edition of VISTA Home Premium that I have right now is SPS2, updated this with the Service Packs from Microsoft themselves, via Microsoft Update. The original disc upgrade I was Home Premium regular, without have been issued at the time of the purchase by Microsoft service pack. »

    You must UNINSTALL the Service Packs from your installed operating system or their wake on the disc to allow you to use your original DVD to do a upgrade repair.

    Re-read the link I gave you.

    • IF YOU HAVE INSTALLED SP1 FOR VISTA:
    • This will not work if you have the SP1 is installed unless your Vista installation DVD includes SP1, or create you a Vista SP1 slipstream installation DVD (see below). When SP1 is installed, it will give Vista a version newer than what's on the Vista installation DVD original number.
    • You can only do an upgrade installation if the currently installed Vista is a version identical or older than what is on the Vista installation DVD.
    • To create a Vista SP1 slipstream installation DVD to use to do a repair install (upgrade), see: How to create a DVD of Installation of Vista SP1 Slipstream. Note that this still does not work to use a repair installation.
    • Another option is to uninstall the Vista SP1, and then run the repair facility and install SP1 again later. To uninstall SP1, see: Microsoft Help and Support: how to uninstall Windows Vista SP1 as a troubleshooting step
    • IF YOU HAVE INSTALLED VISTA SP2:
    • This will not work if you have the SP1 and SP2 installed unless your installation DVD Vista includes SP2.

    Hello

    You can view these methods:

    Method 1:

    Try the SFC scan on the computer.

    SFC/scannow is a very useful command that you can use in any version of Windows. When the SFC (System File Checker) command is used with the/scannow switch, the tool analyzes all the important files of Windows on your computer and replace if necessary.

    Missing and the corruption of the operating system (like many DLLs) files are probably the main cause of the major problems of Windows. In view of this, plus the fact that the SFC/scannow is completely automatic and very easy to use, the tool should be usually one of your top not troubleshooting.

    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/929833

    Method 2:

    I recommend you perform the clean boot.
     
    Configuration of your system in a clean boot state helps determine if third-party applications or startup items are causing the problem. If so, you need to maybe contact the manufacturer of the program for updates or uninstall and reinstall the program.

    How can I sort the search results of Vista by relevance.  I understand, sort by file type, date, etc, but how do I sort results by relevance - see the most relevant results first?

    Would it be possible for you to 'tag' data in the comments column. That's exactly how Live and other research, do it. When your search phrase matches a tag, you get a star. Some people use "metatags in web pages to"mark"their site. No reason why you could metatag not your data.

  • Windows Vista - search failed to initialize?

    Hi all. I went to my computer the other day and when I typed in the search bar, it is said 'Search cannot initialize' and basically refuses to get anything. I tried a few solutions, but these come short to half way through the tutorial because of a few things.

    One person said 'research', which of course cannot be searched via the start menu because that's the problem! Laughing out loud. I can't find anything.
    Another step that I saw in a different tutorial says to restart the index or something involving to go into Control Panel, then system and maintenance, but when I go into the system and maintenance, there is nothing to find. It says "There are no items to display." So, basically, system and maintenance is empty.
    Who is supposed to be an automatic problem specially for my problem solver (I thought it wouldn't work, but thought why not give it a try?)
    He ran last night and he seemed to take quite some time, so I let him do his thing of the day after. I go back to the computer, and he claims that all problems have been resolved. It fixed problems related to coding, windows search not start, restart windows search, windows search does not search, etc.. Large. Very well. So, I'll test this claim out and find that it has not fixed all the. I get the same exact error message when trying to search for anything.
    So, please, help me on this. Is there a way to solve this annoying problem? Having no research on your system, it's like having no google on the internet. It's just debilitating. And it takes forever to find everything manually. I also tried restoring system to go to an earlier point in time, BING, another problem. There is only a single restore point - which was an update of windows. I restored to that but it solves nothing, and when I return to the system restore, it is right back in the restore points, so I guess that windows automatically updates right after the update is cancelled. With the point of not more than a restoration to return, (which will not solve the problem), I fear of system restore is out of the question as well.
    ANY HELP? Thank you

    Hey I solved the problem by rebuilding the index.

    To remove and recreate the search index:

    1. ReachControl Panel
    2. SelectIndexing Options
    3. Click on Advanced (this will open the Advanced Options dialog box)
    4. Select it Rebuild button.
    Don't forget that I had to click on "Classic Mode" before to do because the modern version would not display all items. Some may not have this extra step, but I had to. I am writing just so that anyone else having this problem can see how to fix it! Thanks for your help, if!
