I altered it... how i have 900+ indexed items. first thing I did when i reinstalled was removing everything but the Start Menu and removed some of the 'Start Menu' search options in taskbar.

(I had to reinstalled because this happened earlier and i thought that would fix the problem but it only did temperarily.) and now I want to restore it to its default.

I thought that hitting the 'Restore Defaults' button would restore it, but after i restart when i go into the "Modify" tab in the Index Options 'Modify' tab I find checkmarks that it wont let me deselect. So instead of the origional 50 some indexed items there are 900+, (i was able to origionaly and i am the administrator... and its indexing alot of things)
