Default Google Desktop Search

Sometimes, Google Desktop search gives resaults of files that have been moved or deleted. Is there any way i can purge all these files so it wont come up with all the deleted or moved files.

It detects the files even after they have been emptied from the trash bin?

no, it detects the files, but if it is moved it still shows up in the search results.

yae but the weird thing is, I didn't even think there was a file associated with it. I did a search last nite and it found an instant message conversation from like 2 weeks ago. It thought IM's were just sessions and not actually stored in a file.

If google desktop can find it, it has to be somewhere that I can find it too, but where??

you have to re index the files. I had to do that with my copernic desktop search (it faster and it doesn't track your activity and it find the file, while you are typing the name) after I rearrange my files
