I am using a Dell Studio 17 with Windows 7 and Office 2007 and have downloaded the service pack 2.

In Outlook 2007, when I use instant search I always get "No matches found". I have tried may things to resolve this without success including:
-restarting Outlook
-restarting my computer
-checking for updates (everytime I search for updates I am redirected to my 'Windows Update' from my start menu and it says 'Windows is up to date')
-I have verified that instant search is enabled by going in Outlook to Tools > Instant Search > Search Options and under 'Index messages in these data files' the box next to my Personal folders is checked (this is the only folder)
-I have verified indexing is complete by going to Tools > Instant search > Indexing Status and there are zero items remaining.
-I have rebuilt the index by going to my Control panel and clicking rebuild

these are the add-ins i have:

Active Addins
iTunes Outlook Addin
Microsoft VBA for Outlook Addin

Inactive Addins
Calendar Gadget for Windows SideShow
Microsoft Exchange Unified Messaging
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server Colleague Import Add-in
Microsoft Change Notifier
Windows Search Email Indexer

-I've heard that the itunes and change notifier addins can cause problems, but I have them so that I can sync my calenders, notes, and contacts to my iTouch (which I am not able to do)
