    When running lots of drive I/o at times when I paste a keyword into the
    windows desktop search box
    it will just show the left most letter of what I entered and a few bits of
    the next letter like the video id torn and the letter sizes are slightly
    larger than normal.

    This sort of looks like directx strangeness.

    I have to past the data a second time to get it to search for it.

    there have been times when I search and it will not show all the items that
    are there.

    example: go to a dir full of files and enter * for the search it should
    return all that are there but does not some times.

    I have the search set to not index but to search manually every time and
    only file names.

    I some times get the feeling this is due to the quad core cpu. It seems
    like 1 core may get running in a thread on some task and locks the security
    and then the next core try's to access that dir and cannot and stops while
    the first keeps on.
    I often wonder if there is a way to set the system to run its security and
    file tasks all on just 1 cpu core to stop this.

    Just a thought Frank
