Windows search in general is very poor, but prior to upgrading MS Outlook 2010, it was an easy and useful tool for searching my Outlook contacts. Since upgrading, however, the search only works ~25% of the time. If i search for "mike" for example, it may not yield any results even though i know there are several contacts with that name. Changing the search to "Mike" sometimes does yield the expected results (sometimes not).

I have unchecked the box for limiting search results to save time. This does not solve my problem. Please help.
