How can I turn off Windows Indexing, service was disabled, indexing still running
Posted on 2011-03-14
I posted a question on here last week asking how to stop Windows Indexing from running every morning. Following the suggestions, I went into Administrative Services, found the indexing service, and under "Startup Type" selected Disabled (originally the setting was manual).
Well indexing is running again this morning.
I have gone back into the Indexing Service properties, and it says that the service is stopped. But the magnifying glass in my system task tray indicates that indexing is running - and I can tell it is running, because I hear it cranking away on my hard drive, as it does every morning when indexing runs.
In the System Configuration Utility, I see Windows Search under the services and under Startup, but I don't see any services or startup programs that refer to indexing.
What else could be causing the indexing service to run each morning?
