How to index for Outlook 2007 in Win7Pro

My Outlook 2007 uses a .ost file with Exchange. I recently set up new computer with Win7Pro 64 bit and find my Outlook is not finding some things.  How do I reset the index?  I did this once a long time ago, but need a refresher.  Seems like you quit Outlook, go to control panels, index options and from there I am unsure. Seems like you open the advanced button and check and uncheck somethings..?

you are on the right track; in control panel > index Option > Advanced > File Types Tab > scroll down to ost and pst also to make sure it's checked.

Go back to the index Settings Tab and click on rebuild.
