Default Some Relief

Finally, I have found some relief. As I stated in my last post, I found a large number of files in my Temporary Internet Files folder. I continue to find, that after visiting only a few inocuous websites, that this folder is accumulating 2000 to 3000 or more files (highest I seen so far is just over 3700). If I delete these files prior to running ASC 5, the process goes much more quickly, completing in about 2 hours Further, if I disconnect my internet connection (and delete the files in the Temporary Internet Files folder) prior to starting the scan and repair, then the Deep scan and repair completes in less than an hour.

So, there appears to be two issues. First, why does my Temporary Internet Files folder keep accumulating large numbers of files? And second, why is ASC 5 faster when there is no internet connection? Is this last issue related to "updating"?

To answer your questions I would start eliminating possiblities,
by disabling 'auto update', etc.
Disable settings or utilities, except the ones in question, by removing check-marks,
and see how those changes effect time and results.
Each of the many utilities, that you have questions about, need to be tested in that way.
Running them in Manual mode, Not Auto-run!

I like to keep a written record of what changes I have made to the default settings,
this can eliminate confusion in the future.

It is strange that your Temporary Internet Files folder is filling up so quickly, I have been using the internet for about 4 hours now and have been to at least 15 different websites (doing research) and only have about 35 files in my Temporary Internet Files folder.

Could it be that something is adding to your Temporary Internet Files folder in the background (even if you are not using a browser) so then ASC can never complete the job of deleting the files. When you are disconnected from the internet then ASC can complete the job. I don't know if this is the answer, just "thinking out loud"
Have you done a full anti-virus/malware scan lately? If not, it would be a good idea to do a full scan I think.

Prior to doing this add/remove process, a second searchindex related process had been showing up in Taskmanager. I don't recall now the exact name of that process, but it did have "index" in the name. The add/remove programs list shows that Windows Search 4.0 is installed. I did not uninstall it as I was not sure if it was exactly related to the Indexer.....
If you want to permanently get rid of Indexer you can also do the following. I uninstalled via Control Panel that you did before and also did both these long ago and have seen no ill effects.
• My Computer
• Right click on the C drive and select Properties
• Un-tick Allow indexing service to index this disk for fast file searching
• Apply (This might take a while to complete depending on how many files you have on your drive)
• OK

You could then disable the Service if you want.
• Control Panel
• Administrative Tools
• Services
• Right click on Indexing Service
• Click on Stop if necessary
• Change Startup Type to Disabled
• Apply
• OK

All the best, woz of oz

If you use the Same files Often, then you want to leave 'Indexing' turned On,
to enable faster access searches.
At least that's the way I think it works?

Thumbs up Search

The Search in XP is horrid, you type in the Search query, click Search, then it takes so long to do the search. If you make a typo or misspell a word and get no results you have to go back to the beginning and try again.

Everything Search that I linked to in post# 9 very quickly lists all files and then the list grows shorter as you type the search query.
EG: Typing IObit will show all IObit software etc then continue to type Advanced would only show items related to IObit Advanced SystemCare
If you make a typo or misspell the Search query (EG: Adc) you can see it straight away and then Backspace and try again.
Items can be opened, launched and deleted using Everything Search.
It really is the 'bee's knees'

I think Win7 Search works like this also? If it does then this is probably why the author of Everything did not update it.

All the best, woz of oz

'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.

Edit:
Ah, I found what you are reffering to:

Default 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.

Sincerely,
-Mel
Live long ande prosper!

Going back to your previous post:

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)

Do you have Enable Secure File Deletion ticked, see image of my setup:

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.
