I need to re-index my whole drive for Spotlight so I added it in the Privacy settings ('+'), then removed it as instructed ('-'), but nothing happened. Apparently this method of re-indexing has trouble with 10.5.8. What else can I do?

Resolution

Download and install the Mac OS X 10.5.1 Update or later

Does that help?
