Outlook 2010 unable to use search

sunny72 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Ever since i installed Office 2010, i have not been able to use the search feature in Outlook. When i do a search it never returns any results no matter what i put in the search area (Seen in picture below). I believe it has something to do with Windows indexing, when i go to 'Indexing Options' and click modify on Microsoft Outlook all of the locations are grayed out (other users - As seen in the picture below). Compared to a computer that is working were it has 'Microsoft Outlook (Domain\user.name) with a tick next to it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
