Searching for Files on Leopard (pulls up web pages - help!)

Hi there--I've got an intel MacBook and am using Leopard.

Here's my problem: When I try to search for files from my desktop using propellor-f (not Spotlight--I've already figured out how to disable web pages there), or when looking for files through the 'Open' menu in an application, it pulls up TONS of cached web pages. It's quite annoying when I'm trying to find a specific file, having to sift through half my web history. Is there a way to turn this off? I just want to search through my files. No web history, thanks.

Any help would be appreciated!
