INDEXING SERVICE DISABLING

1. In the "Start" menu, choose "Run."
2. Type "services.msc" and press Enter.
3. Scroll-down to "Indexing Service" and double-click it.
4. If the service status is "Running", then stop it by pressing the "Stop" button.
5. To make sure this service doesn't run again, under "Startup Type:", choose "Disabled."

Dell Vostro 1000
Windows XP SP3
About a year old
Memory: 1Gig (894MB)
About 70 free Gigs ( I just did a full reinstall of windows xp, all I've done is drivers, sp3, avira antivirus, and malwarebytes)

Though, I went to bed in frustration last night, so I guess it must have been my lack of windows updates or something because when I typed this up it had just finished a Windows update and needed a restart and I went to bed in the meantime...No issues!

Thanks for the help guys, I'll be sure to come back with any questions that I might have.
