2. ccleaner no issue.
3. Delayed start of indexing
4. There is no file in c:\windows\system32\config\TxR (some one told me to delete file with .blf and regtrans-ms extention in this folder.
5. Off/on windows search service in windows feature.

1. Did you try to scan your PST file ( with scanpst.exe )?

2. Then clear all your Outlook Temporary items.

For Outlook 2010 it must be:

%USERPROFILE%\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\

Hello Aditya,

Please stop the Indexing service in windows 7 machine and after stop.. delete the below file from the directory.

The default location of the Search Index (windows.edb) file varies depending upon the system upon which it is installed. On Windows Vista and Windows 7 the default location is:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Search\Data\Applications\Windows\Windows.edb

and start the service and see the results..


Thanks,
Andy Navi

OK don't change the clean boot settings.

Step 1:

Download OTL:
http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/OTL.exe

And save it to your Desktop

Step 2:

Run it as an Administrator and scan with these settings:

settings
Note you have to Include 64bit Scans only in 64bit Systems!

Step 3:

OTL will create 2 logs on the Desktop (OTL.Txt & Extras.Txt) . Please upload them (both txt files) to us. Note: Don't copy and post the content here!

Also upload scan results from the CBS.LOG.
( C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log )

Step 1:

Run OTL as an Administrator. Make sure all other windows are closed.
Do not change any other settings unless otherwise told to do so.

Step 2:
Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following (without numbers):

:COMMANDS
 [CREATERESTOREPOINT]

:FILES
 ipconfig /flushdns /c

:COMMANDS
 [purity]
 [EMPTYTEMP]
 [Reboot]

Open in new window


Step 3:

click the Run Fix button at the top. Let the program run uninterrupted.
After the Computer will reboot.

Then you can try this:
