I don't know how many posters seem to think...that all posts are memorized or categorized in a summary manner...but they aren't (AFAIK).

Sooooo...if I were going to reference any of my previous posts, I would provide a link to same, especially so if they contained any pertinent info re whatever I am currently posting about.

Regarding the above graphic, I think that running chkdsk /r or running chkdsk from My Computer (with both options checked) will take care of that. Chkdsk will fix the

While I'm not real familiar with this particular part of Windows - this appears to be an error with the Indexing Service. The cause may be a disk corruption or a corruption within Windows (either a normal corruption or a corruption due to a virus).

But, a workaround to this particular error is to shut off the Indexing Service on your system. From what I've seen, it doesn't give any particular benefits to most desktop users. You can use these instructions to disable it: http://lifehacker.com/software/optimizatio...s-xp-031440.php
