Windows Search Service will not start.  Microsoft Fixit was unable to repair.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Gratefully,

If still not fixed, try the following:

Go to control panel, click Programs, and then click Turn Windows features on or off. Uncheck Windows Search feature. Restart PC. Now repeat the above and check Windows Search feature.

Aadih -

Thank you very much for the quick response.  I went through the Microsoft KB article, which was very helpful.  I could delete all but three of the items:

1 .BLF file
2 .REGTRANS-MS

They could also not be deleted in Safe Mode.

What is the next step?

Thank you in advance, Aadih.

Gratefully,
