My PC seems to be struggling when using the XP HE Search function.

It seems to take an age to come back with anything matching the search string, everything else slows down, and the CPU usage goes tops...:(

Should this be happening?

Even as I type this thread, I see the characters appearing a few seconds after I type them...

I'm not really sure what is going on, but why not do a system check at PC Pitstop and just see how your computer is doing. You could, of course, have a virus or other pest causing this behavior. BTW, I don't think it is 'normal' to see letters you type appear with a delay.

Turning on the Indexing Service may make the searches faster, but Windows is having a problem, so it proboballywouldn't work
