Searching network drive in Windows XP is MUCH faster than searching in Windows 7

I have a network drive that when I search for a file on a Windows XP computer, the results come up almost right away (less than 30 seconds). When I do it on a Windows 7 machine, I can easily wait 3 minutes and still no results come up. Is there a reason for this? I heard that Windows 7 indexes folders so you have to include folders in your indexing options, but I thought this would take forever (bog down the machine since the folder structure is huge and constantly changing (plus I didn't think XP did this)
