When I expand the search to show the options in the query builder, they are

all greyed out and I cannot access them or "add criteria" - I've tried

everything I can think of, but cannot seem to build a query. I can still

used advanced find and open a new window, but it seems that the query builder

may be a nice option (if I could get it to work).

Any suggestions?

The query builder is only available when you install Windows Desktop Search.

I have downloaded Windoiws Desktop Search. After doing so I got a message

sayiing that it was going to index my files. As far as I can see, it has

indexed nothing, and the query builder is still greyed out for me as well.

Suggestions?

What's reported when selecting;

Tools-> Instant Search...-> Indexing Status...?

If you look at the Indexing Options in Control Panel, does it show Microsoft

Office Outlook as a source to be indexed?
