Hello rattleme,

Do you have Outlook 2007 on Vista?

You can disable indexing in Vista.  Scroll down to the subtopic Disabling Vista

Hope this helps!

Do you have Windows Desktop Search or Google Search?  What is indexing?

You can start the indexing again, or stop the indexing through the respective program.

Oultook 2007 uses Windows Desktop Search to do indexing.  Disable the indexing or restart it.
