Good evening,

A few hours ago I just happened to notice an icon resembling a magnifying glass on my Taskbar which is apparently associated with Indexing in the Control Panel.

When I hover the mouse pointer over the Taskbar icon, sometimes it will state, "Indexing Complete." Other times it will say, "Indexing speed is reduced due to user activity."

I have NEVER had this issue occur before and frankly have NO idea what it means, or how to deal with it.

I would appreciate any assistance in ascertaining WHAT this is all about, and how to resolve any problems associated with it!

Thank you.

Have you tried right clicking it and seeing what are you're options? (Like exit, or if you can get any other info.)

Thanks for responding Jerrell!

The image I've attached below shows what is available when right-clicking on the icon.

I'm far from being computer-saavy...so I would be VERY hesitant to go clicking on ANY of the options shown in the screenshot. With MY luck...I'd end up completely disrupting my computer system!

Hey again Jerrell!

I finally figured out the problem. It seems earlier today, I had been on the Windows Update site and downloaded an "optional" program called Windows Search 4.0. I did a little more checking and discovered other people had experienced this same indexing issue and resolved it by simply uninstalling it.

Everything seems to be o.k.now.

Thanks again for getting back with me!
