There are a lot of errors in Event Viewer related to Windows Search (Event ID:3013, Search). They started to appear last 7-8 days without any reason. No such errors before.

All of them seem to be related to Firefox:

.......
Etc. etc.
 
What mean these entries? I've never got them before.

Thanks in advance.

After disabling indexing option for some drives, I rebuilt the index (System and maintenance/Indexing Options/Advanced/Rebuild). I let it run for a while only. Didn't wait until the end of process.

 

The errors seem to be stopped for now. I hope it doesn't occur again.

I had to exclude Users\"name"\Appdata\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles and Users\"name"\Appdata\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles in indexing options to stop errors in event viewer.

 I'd download MalwareBytes, get it up to date, and do a scan.  You might've picked up some malware.

 

 Good luck.


Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

better than that, lets have a mod move this to AII. Might be malware, but I'm not convinced.

I already did it. Malwarebytes found nothing at all.

 

I've tried Adwcleaner as well. There was an entry only, found in registry: YahooPartnerToolbar. I never had toolbars. So I found out -thanks to JV16 PowerTools- that the item was created in 2011 during installation of Java 6u24 (Yes, I had unchecked the option -if any- to install it). I deleted it manually. Actually, there is no problem on my system.

 

And about indexing:

"On my Windows 7 machine it appears the AppData folder is excluded from indexing.  This is the default search setting of my installation."

http://www.sevenforums.com/software/156994-cant-get-search-results-appdata-content.html

"Remember, searching from Start Menu only searches indexed locations. By default, AppData is not indexed..."

http://www.tenforums.com/performance-maintenance/34751-indexing-options-exclusion-list.html

"By default C:\Users\<whoever>\Appdata is excluded but you've changed it to something else...."

 

My indexing options were changed somehow? I don't know.
