I've reinstalled XP , outlook 2007 and all programs on my P.C.
I had an Outlook search tool that quickly indexed and Highlighted all results quickly.
I believe this was a microsoft  add-on feature.
It pretty much the same as instant search except it highlighted the seach terms in all emails and it searchs as you are typing (you don't have to press the "enter" key
I'm really used to this feature and don't want to give it up.
Does anyone know what software I was using or how to enalbe it in Instant Search for Outlook 2007?

Yes go to tool, Customize, Select Tools, under categories, and scroll down until you see Instant search in the command section. Drag the command to your tool bar.

raca-
I don't think this is what I'm looking for.
I think you simply pointing to Instant Search which is already part of Outook 2007.
The feature I'm looking for Highlights the search results in yellow instantly and you don't have to press enter.

That is it. Go into the options for "search options" and make sure that the options are checked in the search section and the highlighter is set to what ever color you want.

all options are "greyed out" not available.
I must need to turn something else on.

If the search option is grayed out, install Windows desktop search 3.01
