Indexing Problem


Recommended Posts

Why does AWC automatically stop the service of Windows Search Indexing????? Its really useful, and it is pretty difficult to turn it back on... when i looked at the optimization section in AWC, i unchecked that part, yet it still stopped that service. I would like an answer to this...

The continuous indexing of files on your computer actually slows down your computer and doesn't give you any major benefits unless you frequently do very extreme searches for files (why not just use the search companion anyways?)


Typically, it is easier to just search for a file if it is organized into a folder(i.e. My Documents). Most people have their files neatly arranged so that they aren't hard to find. The speed in searching for this new file using an indexing tool versus the performance lost due to indexing running is really something some people are willing to exchange for.



You may have noticed the pagefile on your computer is really bloated or cpu usage is really high or the process Cidaemon.exe uses a lot of resources- this is because of the running indexing service.


You can find an online article of microsoft.com about this

Disabling search stops Outlook Search


I wanted to throw my '2 cents' worth in on Search in Vista. Disabling search also disables search in Outlook. And, it disables what I think is a very useful Vista feature - search on the start menu displaying Outlook contents. I have not seen any noticeable speed impact from Search on my fairly new PC with dual core AMD and 2 GB memory (have run both with and without search).


I teach basic computers to new PC users, and I think a better warning about turning off search would be appropriate.
