The Query class is not intended to be used directly from your code, but is designed to be the base implementation for the SharePoint Enterprise Search Query object model classes.

Instead, you should use the FullTextSqlQuery class for executing SQL syntax search queries, or the KeywordQuery class for executing keyword syntax or FAST Query Language (FQL) search queries.

For more information about the SharePoint Enterprise Search Query object model, see Search Query Object Model Overview.
