    When I try this I get a message saying, "Instant search encountered a problem. Modifying your query may resolve this problem."

    I have no idea what to do about this, but I really need this search function.

    I'm kind of a newbie, so I don't exactly know what I'm doing, but I'm still relatively good with computers.

    Thank you,
    Brad

    This didn't fix the problem. It did show that there were problems with the .pst file and fixed them, but I still can't search. I also went to indexing clicked 'Restore Defaults' and rebuilt the whole index on my computer. Still no luck. Any suggestions on what to do?
