    Can I use this Windows Search / Indexing solution from Windows Vista?


    Index - Windows Search Service

    I'm having a huge problem where things simply won't search on my laptop, and the Microsoft folder isn't even in Program Files, so I'm unsure if the other methods are even safe. *Huh

    :)

  3. windows search crashing with event ID 7040

    A couple of times a week my Search Index crashes with:

    Source: Event ID: Meaning:

    Search 7040 Found corrupt data

    Search 7042 Service Windows Seach stopping because of corrupt data

    Search 1013 Service is stopped

    Search 1008 Trying to remove old index-files

    Search 1010 Index-files successfully removed

    Search 1004 Starting to rebuild new index

    (The above is translated from my danish eventviewer - guess it makes more sence than copying the danish terms)

    I've found several "solutions" for this - everyone one of them basicly suggesting "rebuild index". Not that helpfull Can I use this Windows Search / Indexing solution from Windows Vista? :)

    What I need is a tool / way to troubleshoot Windows Indexing, so I can see which objects / files is the cause of my index going corrupt.

    Does anyone know of such a tool - or other helpfull suggestions?

    Can I use this Windows Search / Indexing solution from Windows Vista?

    Ultra Search is one of the better programs out there. It uses the MBR for its index, vs. Windows Search using a Index database that can get screwed up.
