Windows 7 search locks up computer when going up one level from results

Windows 7 built in search is terrible. For a start it starts searching before you've finished typing the search term. It doesn't display the folder path in search results. When I click on a folder and then try to go back or up one level it hangs my computer to the point where I have to force reboot. :ergh:

There is an option to open in new window, however, the folder path isn't shown and if I go up one level a page appears showing no relation to what I've searched for and again doesn't relate to windows explorer structure, it shows an unusual looking page which appears to attempt to show all files folders on the computer!
when I try to close this page the computer hangs, locks up and I have to force a reboot.

Therefore the whole search function in W7 needs rebuilding, if that's possible ? :numbness:
