    'Indexing' is Only used to speed up access to Often-used files on Drives,
    Not sites or data on the Internet, correct?
    I've never checked on exactly what 'Indexing' Does and what is included.

    I enabled 'Indexing' on my wife's computer and she reported a slight Improvement during website developement, using W-7,
    but I've never tested it myself.

    Ah, I found what you are reffering to:

      Hi prflani!

      What browser and version are you using? I'm curious if you use a different browser does the same thing happen? I've noticed that Opera is particularly prone to accumulate files.

      Live long ande prosper!

        Even 30 minutes seems a long time to me, my Deep Scan takes 5 > 10 minutes.
        What is the Capacity, Used Space and Free Space of your C drive (My Computer > Right click C > Properties)

        I am certainly not an expert on CPU but I have seen quite a few software use what looks like 100% CPU when it is available (computer at idle) but it 'releases' some of that CPU when Windows or other software needs it.
        A more knowledgable member might be able to explain CPU usage for us.

        Sorry, I now see you previously mentioned that you did do scans
