Windows 7 Not searching file content?

in vista, i was able to type a key phrase i knew existed in a document somewhere in the folder, and search would find that document. now when i search, it only seems to find documents named something. if i turn on "Always search file names and contents", it still does not find the documents. And now, quick searching (say for calculator) in the start bar search also takes forever. so because it takes so long to just search for calc, i just have "In index locations..." selected, which makes searching in start bar for apps quick, but it still doesn't solve the inability to search the actual content of my word docs.
