I used Regedit to change HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Desktop Search\DS (set to 0) to default 'Search' to the old search companion. This apparently turned off the indexing service in Outlook, now I can't search my messages.
Outlook search reports "Search results may be incomplete because items are still being indexed" - count of items remaining is total count.
Regedit no longer starts, so I can't change it back.
Indexing Options in control panel shows "Indexing not running", I am unable to modify it.
I have stopped and restarted that service in administrative tools.
I have added Indexing to window components.
My hard drive does not show the check boxes to "Allow indexing"
I downloaded Windows Desktop Search 4.0, but it give a setup error.
What a nightmare.
HOW DO I RESTORE INDEXING IN OUTLOOK?
