    WSearch No Longer Working


    For some reason the search indexing service has stopped and I can't restart it. I've tried rebooting multiple times. I've seen some other threads mention RPC and it is indeed running on my system. This happened very recently (24 hours).

    From the services panel, trying to start the service results in:

    Any ideas?

  2. service named "Windows Search" does not exist; WSearch service - "Error 5: Access is denied"

    In an Administrator Command Prompt see what you get from

    sc.exe qc wsearch

    and

    sc.exe queryex wsearch

    and

    sc.exe qdescription wsearch

    (since that seems to be a problem)

    A PowerShell alternative is

    Get-Service wsearch | fl *

    Unfortunately (surprisingly) that doesn't show the Description.

    Windows 10 cannot "Safe Eject" USB drive

    I may not be proper, but this worked on my Win10 desktop PC: Do Ctrl-Alt-Del and open Task Manager. Select the Services tab and stop Wsearch service. Then afterwards you can go back to task manager and start Wsearch again.
