I love the search facility on the VBista start menu, however most of the search results are emails received or sent through Outlook. How do i stop Vista from searching in Outlook?

Sorry people but I think I've found the answer, so here it is for anyone else who finds this irritating:
Click start and type in a search criteria, I used the word "games" click on "see all results". Click on search tools from the window that opens and from the drop down select "modify indexed locations". Click modify and then from the window that opens untick Outlook and click ok. Next click on the advanced button and then on "rebuild" to deselect Outlook. Ok this then close the indexing options window and search results.

Now when you click start and type in a search criteria, Outlook messages are not searched.

However now the indexing in Outlook has been removed. If I then search for an item from within Outlook it rebuilds the index and again will display outlook messages on start menu searches. Probably serves me right for working with the most up to date microsoft products available namely Vista Business and Office 2007.

Ah well the question still stands if anyone has an answer
