Windows search


When opening a file explorer in Windows 7, there is a search bar on the top right corner. For some reason, this search function stops working today. I know the files contain what I search for are in the folder. But it keeps coming up empty. Any ideas? thanks

Stops Working (error) ?  or Empty (?)  Different issues.

If empty, go to Control Panel, Indexing Options, Advanced and Rebuild the Index. Needs to probably run overnight.
