Windows 7 desktop search just too slow RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am really amazed at how Google (time and again) beats MS on its own turf. Whether it be chrome (super fast start + super fast rendering) or google desktop search

     

    Anywho, my problem is desktop search is getting slower by the day. I have tried to keep as less things in the index option as possible but its just damn embarrassingly slow. Is there a way to optimize the desktop (besides reducing the items in the index)

     

    Thanks

  • Hi,

     

    How long will your machine finish a normal index?

     

    Please logon with Clean Boot to see if it can index faster. Furthermore, you can try to rebuild index for test:

    Please note: it will take a bit long time to rebuild index.
