Hi I'm having a problem keeping window search started, it states it is start pending via the speccy app and I've tried running the trouble shooter and it will start but for some reason then stops - at the end of the trouble shooting it states window search not running - not fixed and under details it states start windows search service completed. I check the regedit and it's already set at 0.  Any ideas? This is my work computer and driving me CRAZY as my outlook email is now not indexed! And I use my search all the time for over 20k in emails.

Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  When the  FileHippo website opens, click on Download latest version in the upper left pane.
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.
Click on File which is outlined in red in the screen above, and then click on Publish Snapshot.
The following screen will appear, click on Yes.
The following screen will appear, click on Copy to Clipboard.
In your next post right click inside the Reply to Topic box, then click on Paste.  This will load a link to the Speccy log.

Please download MiniToolBox  , save it to your desktop and run it.
 Checkmark the following checkboxes:
• List last 10 Event Viewer log
• List Installed Programs
• List Users, Partitions and Memory size.

 Click on Go to start the scan.  Once it is finished highlight the text, copy it and paste it in your next post.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
