My workstation at work uses Win 2K. When I try to search the C drive for files (e.g., by specifying *.xlt), the search only looks inside the Documents and Settings folder. Files in the Program Files folder are never found. Does anyone have an explanation and/or a fix?

Re: Search problem
Have you tried to change the default search folder to the "Root" of the C drive?
By default Windows will search ONLY the "My Documents" folder.
