Windows Desktop search is acting wierd RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows XP Pro SP3

    WDS was running OK for a while. Lately it is acting weird. It is indexing non stop and the status (number of files indexed) is going down and then up and then down again. 

    I did re-indexed a few weeks ago (takes forever on my computer) and it seemed to be working OK but in the last few days it started acting weird again. I could not connect it to anything. There was a security update for IE 8 that forced a reboot. 

    Any ideas how to troubleshoot this? Do you suggest uninstall and reinstall WDS and if so how?

  • I would uninstall it, cant remember if it shows up under turn off windows features or add/remove programmes.
