Vista search - preview pane problem

Posted: 10-11-2008, 10:50 PM
The preview pane in Vista search seems to work intermittently. Many times
it simply won't give any preview at all, even though it may have previewed
that very file just seconds before. This is more likely to happen with pdf
files (I have Acrobat Reader 9 installed) than Office docs, but it happens
with those too. This problem pretty much makes the preview pane unworkable.
Any ideas what may be wrong, or is this a Vista bug?
