Default Items still being indexed, error message

When I put a name or word in the search box, a banner pops up that says: “Search results may be incomplete because items are still being indexed. Click here for more details.
When I click the banner, a Microsoft Office Outlook box pops up:
Outlook is currently indexing your items.
Search results may be incomplete because items are still being indexed
23596 items remaining in “Personal Folders”.
23596 items remaining across all open mailboxes.
I have emptied my deleted and junk folders. I had a lot of messages in a search folder called unopened mail, I have deleted that folder. At the most I have a couple of thousand items in the folders of Personal Folders, but I keep getting this message, and the seardh is not complete, it misses many recent items.
I have shut down Outlook and restarted it numerous times. Nothing seems to help.

Thank you Shawn76,
Your link led me to another link in MSOutlook.info. I followed the step by step instructions to scanpst, reset index, rebuild index. Then left it sit overnight. The next morning, Outlook index status showed great big number left to index. I gave up and went about my work thinking that I would have to tackle it another day and just live without Instant Search until then. Tonight I decided to do a search and it seems to be working perfectly. Thanks again.
