Search not working properly

I have an issue with the search.

I started with a clean install of Silverstripe 2.3.7
I added E-Commerce, Payment, etc.
Made a few extensions to the Product Class.

All in all nothing special.

I add my new pages, do a search, and they don't come up.
I add the same keyword I'm searching for to the default homepage, about page, etc. It still doesn't come up.
I search for a word that was already on those pages and I get results.

Debug::show of the Query and I search with it in PHPMyAdmin, I get results for old content, nothing for the new content.
The DB Fields are set to fulltext as they should, so I'm lost.

I can see the word I'm looking for right there in PHPMyAdmin, but it's not showing up when I run the query.

I'm stumped. From a logical standpoint the only thing that comes to my mind is showhow the indexes used in fulltext isn't being properly updated or something.
I haven't messed with the Search Engine code. ( even if I did the queries that should work don't )
Droping the DB and starting over didn't help.
As far as I know I haven't done anything to any pagetype or anything that could have this affect.

Does anyone have any ideas ?

Clean install of Silverstripe 2.3.7.
No Modules, custom code, or changes of any kind.

Add a word to the homepage, Search for it, no results.

Someone got some code get crossed between 2.4 and 2.3 maybe ?

Another Update.

I installed all the way back to 2.3.3 with the same result. I don't understand, I have made no changes to Wamp, and I have 2.3.3 sites on my local box that work fine.
