No search results from network drive

I have three Windows 7 (x64) computers. One of them acts as a file server.  The folder that is shared has about 30,000 files in it.

Two computers can search this mapped folder, but one (not the server) cannot.  If I view the files, pick a file name (or part of it) that I am looking at and search for it, no results are returned.  It seems that once one of the other two computers perform a search, then the problem is resolved.

-I have tried clearing the index on the serving desktop.
-I have tried everything in the following links:

-I have also tried checking the box disabling searching in sub-folders (Folder Options, Search tab)

It is worth noting that checking the box fixed the problem (except the user needs sub-folder searching) and when I unchecked it, the fix stayed until reboot.

Also, the first link fixed the issue, until reboot.

Try using Everything on that PC to search.

This will not solve your problem but should provide a means to search on that PC straightaway.
