Can you give us a bit more detail about what exactly isn't working?

Yes, thanks. If I try to search for anything with Spotlight it finds absolutely nothing. If I try to search for anything in Microsoft Outlook it also finds absolutely nothing. The rest of Outlook appears to be working.

If I search for "x" in the top right of the screen the Spotlight shows a default drop down display with a 'Lookup' title bar and 'Search Web for "x" and Search Wikipedia for "x" ' prompt but that is all.
if I search in the Outlook spotlight top right of the window I just get nothing. Paul
