Unfortunately as far as I know you cannot exclude items from the search 
result explicitly. The only way is to find a criteria that is met by what 
you want to see in the search result and is not metby what you want to 
exclude from the results.

Also in windows you cannot use every file attribute as a search criteria 
(such as hidden, read-only, directory, system).
