    I'm running windows 7 on a dell laptop, and recently, I'm been getting automatic restarts 10 times a day. I've run McAfee, MalawareBytes and uptaded all drivers. Nothing works. When using the PC checkup application, which failed to complete the hardware scan, I found several Application Error messages.

    Here's what they show:

    Faulting Application name: SearchIndexer.exe, version: 7.0.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bd212
    Faulting module name: TQUERY.DLL, version: 7.0.7600.16385, time stamp: 0x4a5be07e
    Exception code: 0xc0000006
    Fault offset: 0x0000000000006648
    Faulting process id: 0xcb0
    Faulting application start time: 0x01cbb08f066821a1
    Faulting application path: C\\Windows\system32\SearchIndexer.exe
    Faulting module path: C\\Windows\system32\TQUERY.DLL
    Report Id: 59706556-1c82-11e0-b06d-b8ac6f70b16a

    The process id changes, as does the start times, but this is the error that comes up with ridiculous freqency. I really hope that someone can help me.

    Press the Windows key + R to open a Run box.

    Type services.msc

    Locate the Windows Search service.

    Double-click it, Stop it and change the Startup Type to Disabled.

    Did the prescribed actions, and it did help.

    It turns out that my HD had failed, but disabling the searchindexer stopped the automatic restarts...thank god it was still under warranty.

    Thanks for the help.
