When the problem occurs in Explorer, try refreshing the view manually with
View|Refresh from the menu bar. If that works, then you need to update your video
driver. The view should refresh automatically after a search completes, but I had a
similar refresh problem that was fixed by a driver update.
Otherwise, post examples of search queries that fail or that produce inconsistent
results. The syntax has changed and queries using the old syntax often don't work
