Can you provide guidance on how to disable searchindexe.exe on an XP o/s. It is just sucking up cycles and everything grinds to a halt. (Thank you MS).
I did a search across the forums and do not find this topic addressed for an xp environment.
I can remove searchindexer from the Windows Task Manager processes list, but I would like to permanently remove or disable it.
Is there any reason to not delete this service? Can I just remove the searchindexer.exe?
I also searched to the Registry and do not find any 'on/off' switch for searchindexer.
Thanks for your help.
