    Well I converted my Vista to XP long ago.

    You dont need to be a programmer to know that it was poo

    Only Neverko still defends Vista I think.

    yeah know all that...it's just un-releiable filth

    as per ususal it tries to help you...i want control and not have to wade thru .jpg.wdesk files [thumbs] as well as jpg files if my search was ONLY for .jpg

    also the results don't count them selves...you get a window full of files but NO number how many there are...you have to select all,rh click...properties to find how many results you have...utter stupid nonsense for 2009.

    the sooner this bag of poo dies the better....i bet windows 7 search is crap too though...

    If you disable indexing, but keep the default search settings. Searching will be borked.

    Diedon, just shut up. You're only making a fool of yourself. You might not see any benefits due to your limited capacity for understanding Vista. But that does not limit the benefits for those who understand and utilize them.

    okay i'll try your settings...

    The movie in youtube clearly demonstrates just from where Vista has come from, and Im making a fool out of myself for not liking it?!!

    Id beg to differ!

    And where just chatting here ok. Switch off the 'Shut Up' and 'Fool' names will you? Your not the one to judge or tell me what to do. Who do you think you are?

    Cant say I had any problem with the search myself, Im using similar settings as Neverko. I think it actually works better if anything... Vista takes a little bit of getting used to but I would never go back, geez I hate XP. Cracks me up how people have so many problems with Vista, it really comes down to user error as far as I can tell, just give it more than 1 day and you should be ok. I'm still on my original install of Vista 64 on this machine after around 2 years (whenever it was first released), it would take an XP miracle for that to happen.

    I am using google desktop for finding my files. Even though I know where to find all my files. I use it more like a quick access tool. Works perfect for me! It only has to index your files once which can take some time.

    Not sure if it is usefull for you, but you might give it a try

    I think you should take a step back, take a deep breath and then spend 2 minutes setting the options to your liking.

    I agree that the defaults are mostly poo. It is just not a big issue to me since it takes a one time session of a couple of minutes to get everything to work.
    so i've now set the layout to 'details pane' so it actually COUNTS the results...

    why o why are the defaults so rubbish in vista?

    fn tags...fn date taken...more stupid defaults!


    yeah once you've hacked vista...it starts to work as well as window 95 but defaults on installs are utter filth.

    turn off uac otherwise zbrush doesn't work....
    change folder types so all you folders have a "date modified"
    change layout so it counts the files...
    change search defaults so it can find stuff
    remove tag
    remove date taken
    remove rating
    turn off areo

    change change change....

    i wish there was a xp setting...so all the above just set them selves up with a single click...

    and re folders on c drive...you can't change the 'drive' to remove tags and date taken and show date modified...you have to do each master folder..unlike drive d,e,f,g etc...

    Actually vista's search is excellent and ability to search from "file open" window is God send, then u need to open lightwave files with not linked textures/objects, just copy the name of missing object, paste to search field and boom u got it , click to load and u can search next one ...
