    Search via "Classic View" and new Vista

    I had the "Classic View" set up for my Start menu. I clicked "Start|Search|For files or folders" and typed in a medicine that I know exists in some medical records that I scanned into PDF and converted it to searchabel PDF.

    Windows Search (Classic View) found it! That's the good part.

    Reading other posts in this forum on 'searches' suggested that if I use the new Vista 'look' (not 'Classic View'), I can get to my search input box in 1 click not three. So I changed to that look, put that same 'medicine' name in, and I go 0 results. Zippo. Nada. Went back to classic. There it is!!

    Okay, why would that be. Are there two different engines running????
    What's going on??
