    Indexing Issue


    When I go to the Indexing Options in Control Panel and select Modify I get the same box checked no matter how many times I uncheck it. Can not seem to find where this 'iehistory' is saved or stored. Have read other issues like the Csc offline files showing up unwanted in Index Options and how to delete it but nothing on this particular issue.
    See screenshot below:

  3. Indexing is not working

    Hi Doc,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    This issue may occur due to corrupt Windows search files or settings. I suggest you to follow the below method and check if it helps.

    Method 1: I would suggest you to run search and indexing troubleshooter
    and check. Please follow these steps:


    • Type troubleshooting in the search box on taskbar.

    • Click troubleshooting in the search results.

    • Click "View all" and then click "Search and Indexing".

    • Click "Next" and follow on-screen instructions.

    Method 2: Check if Indexing and Windows Search services are enabled. If not, enable them, if they are already enabled, then disable Windows Search Service and then enable again and restart.


    • Press Windows key + R.

    • Type services in the run box, go to the Windows search services and restart them.
    Hope it helps.
