    When I use a dialog box I get a warning that my searches may be slow because the index is not running.?:confused:

    No it is not,and I can't restart it (error message).The odd thing is that I can indeed perform a search successfully.??????

    You will be able to search weather indexing is on or not. It will only be slower.

    Right click the C: drive and make sure the Indexing box is checked. I unchecked it cause it was pounding my HD, and I don't need faster searches.
