Windows Search Issue

Hi Guys,

I have a client machine currently that had Windows Search running as a service for a while, however the user was reporting slow performance and it was found that the service was using 99% CPU constantly.

Now that I have disabled the service, the user is reporting Outlook search running VERY slowly.

Machine is Win7 x86, Outlook 2010.

Has anyone ever seen this happen before or have any suggestions on how to fix it?

Many thanks,
Matt

May be it was using CPU while crawling and indexing. Didn't you give some time may be few days and see.

If my previous assumption is not correct It should be because of crawling and indexing is happening forever. May be there is a setting for that case.

I will get back to you after checking that

Hi,

I gave it three days, more than enough to go through the 300Gb HDD.

Thanks,
Matt

As a best practice, You can create Domain policy with the settings mentioned in the below link. Windows search consumes more time for indexing etc.. and hence most of the comapaines adopt this mechanism

chekc if the cpu is seen properly, at the correct speed; speedstep can slow things down
