Apparently Windows Search is tricky.  Go back into services.msc and right click on Windows Search and select Properties then change the Startup Type: to Disabled.  Then stop the service.

 

Then we will try the fixlist one more time.  This one won't reboot.

Go back into Services.msc and change Windows Search startup type: back to Automatic (Delayed Start)

then START the service.

 

Copy the next line:

msdt.exe -ep SystemSettings_Troubleshoot_L2 -id SearchDiagnostic

(Highlight the line then Ctrl + c)

 

 

 

Search for

cmd

It should find Command Prompt

Right click on Command Prompt and Run As Admin.

Right click inside the Command Prompt widow and select Paste (or Edit then Paste).  The copied line should appear.


Hit Enter

 

A new Search & Indexing window should appear.  Hit Next

 

Check all but the last box (My problem isn't listed.) Hit Next

If you get a screen that asks you to describe your problem just hit Next.

 

Does it claim it fixed anything?

 

If it says it can't fix it then see:

 

https://www.winhelpo...x-fix-problems/

 

Scroll down to where it says:

 

Manually Reset Windows Search and Rebuild the Index

and follow the instructions.

I did the first part, and it said that nothing was fixed.

 

I haven't done the second part yet.  Where is the Registry Editor?  Also the steps for Manually Reset Windows Search and Rebuild say at the end to restart the Windows Search Service.  However, I restarted it at the end of the first part.  When do I stop the service?
