Windows 8 Search Function Not Working - Indexing Service Is Active

Oct 24, 2012

I know of two ways to search. Neither is working for me. Indexing service is active.

1) Using Modern UI (see screenshot)

Good : finds things including file contents

Bad : Searches cannot be saved. No advanced options like (type of data: file, outlook etc..), size, date...File types associated with Internet Explorer are opened in Modern UI IE not in Desktop IE. Every time a file is opened, the search results vanish.

2) Using Explorer (see screenshot)

Good : It has everything the Modern UI search lacks (advanced options, save searches etc.)

Bad : Doesn't find things (file content wise). For example the file in the screenshot is on my desktop. It takes minutes and then finds nothing.

Maintenance :: Service Host - Local Service Very High Cpu Usage

May 21, 2014

So I've been having this problem for days now, two tasks named Service Host: Local Service(Network Restricted) and Service Host: Local Service(No Network) keep using up ALL of my cpu, theyre usually accompanied by any app I have open, so my task manager is basically like this for example:

Service Host: Local Service(Network Restricted) 40% cpu usage
Skype 29% cpu usage
Service Host: Local Service(No Network) 26% cpu usage

If I close skype, the usage goes down to 2 percent for a brief second and then any other app I have open launches up instead of skype and uses up all of my cpu.

I've tried several virus scans and I've done my best to clean up the system but I still have this problem

Maintenance :: Windows Media Player Sharing Service - High CPU Usage When PC Idle?

Jun 7, 2014

I'm setting up a new laptop running Windows 8.1. I keep finding the Windows Media Network Sharing Service keeps starting up when the PC is otherwise idle and running at 90% + CPU load for long periods. There is no demand for media streaming when the process is running.

What is this process for? Can I disable it or reconfigure it to reduce the CPU load?

Maintenance :: Service Host - Local System (Network Restricted) High CPU Usage

Sep 8, 2012

As soon as I start an application (Cadence Allegro PCB Designer 16.5 but I don't think it's relevant) my CPU usage gets to the roof and stays there long after I killed the application and I believe I every associated process. The CPU usage is so high that the battery will be drained after about 45 minutes (It usually last about 3 hours).

According to my task manager the responsible is "Service Host: Local System (Network Restricted)". As a matter of fact, preventing the executable from accessing the network sort of solves the issue. I don't believe I need that executable to access the network but I'd like to understand what kind of network service can consume that much CPU (was actually affraid of overheating) and to know if there's a more appropriate way to solve this.

Maintenance :: How To Stop Windows 8 From Absorbing Free RAM

Maintenance :: How To Stop Auto Restore Points

Oct 22, 2013

I am primarily a "slightly competent" linux user, I dislike UEFI, Win 8 and M$ (in that order, most of the time).

Ok, that's me .

New laptop, Windows 8 64bit pre-installed.

Is there any way to stop Win 8 automatically creating restore points, but still allow manual creation of points? Or at least "protect" important restore points.

I recently decided to restore a manual point to find Win 8 has deleted all of my points and replaced with "others". I realize I could increase the storage area, but I don't want that, as I'm always short of disc space.

Win 8.1 File Content Indexing

Jun 19, 2014

I have an issue at a client that has thousands of invoices stored in folders, in PDF format. The often need to look up invoices based on invoice numbers, or other details (such as vehicle registration number) etc.

I have added these folders as a location to be indexed, installed the latest Adobe Reader, and made sure the ifilter value in the registry is the correct one, and confirmed this is available under file types to index. PDFs are set to have content indexed.

PDFs are created by printing to the Bullzip printer driver.

This results in a PDF with textual content, with a few blocks of text (like an invoice) holding customer details, job details, and contact details.

Now, the problem arises when they search, in that when the search for an alphanumeric string, such as a vehicle registration number, results seem to contain strings found as if different boxes of text are being joined. E.g. part of a registration number, and part of a number from another area in the file, being combined, and then matching the search criteria.

Could this be caused by something wrong in the way search is setup? Or in the way the files are created?

This all worked perfectly when they were running it all on Windows XP

Maintenance :: Certain Programs Just Shut Down - Stop Working Correctly

Jul 7, 2013

When I've been running certain programs on my computer, I keep getting the message, program has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. This has happened to me in Internet Explorer when I try to play movies, Windows Media Player, Norton Internet Security and when I try to run Windows Experience index.

Some programs wont even open. My computer has been running fine since I purchased it 8 months ago. This started happening after a windows update a couple of weeks ago. I've refreshed windows 8 twice, ran a full system virus scan, ran malwarebytes and it found nothing. I also tried sfc /scannow and used dism /online /cleanup-image /restore health to fix component store corruption and fix corrupt system files and also tried gwscan from Hirens boot cd. I generated a system health report and this is what the report came up with:

Maintenance :: Programs Stop Responding For No Apparent Reason

Jan 31, 2013

Why do so many programs just stop working, stop responding for no apparent reason??? This includes IE9, e-mail service, new printer/scanner installation, etc, etc, etc. Sometimes even writing a letter or "Save as" just stops responding. How can this be??? Windows says "we're looking for a solution", but nothing ever shows up. Is there no diagnostic that can identify the failure? Is it memory, conflict, what can be causing these annoying interruptions??? Mostly rebooting the system will clear things up.

My setup: Windows 8 PRO, CPU Intel i7 3.40 GHz 64 bit, 16 GB RAM, INTEL SSDSC solid state hard drive 223 GB (about one quarter full). I did not have these problems with Windows 7, or the Windows 8 pre releases.

Network / Sharing :: NAS Drive Not Indexing?

Oct 18, 2013

I have a Sony Vaio connected by Wi-Fi to a BT home hub, which has two NAS drives connected to it by Ethernet.

I deleted all media files photos, videos, mp3s off the Vaio to save disc space, with the intent of accessing them off one of the NAS drives.

Problem is, Windows 8.1 photo app is not locating them. Music app neither. Seems to only be looking locally and at Skydrive.

Yet if I go to Windows media player it finds them on the NAS and builds a library of mp3s.

Drive is properly mapped as a network drive and browsable in file explorer.

Is there something I need to set in the apps, or is it an app limitation?

Maintenance :: Windows 8 File History Backups Stop Prematurely?

Jul 14, 2013

I am facing a problem enabling the file history feature of my Windows 8 Pro installation. After noticing there was no activity to my backup drive, I decided to check what time the latest backup was executed; this turned out to be 3 weeks ago. I formatted the drive and decided to try set it up again. Ever since I have been unable to make it work.

The backups are prematurely stopped. It takes about 10 minutes to copy 50MB of files and some empty folders to the external hard drive, after which it stops as if it were completed. Forcing it run again makes no difference, and no files are copied.

My system is a two month old fresh install. I have disabled my anti-virus software and installed all the latest updates for Windows and most software. I have moved my user folders to another drive through the properties menu. I access them through my libraries, when I select I want to restore files I see them, and some small files are actually backed up to the drive I selected. Therefore I do not think this is why the problem is occurring.

I have already tried slowly formatting the drive and checking it for errors and bad sectors and plugging the drive in different ports. After that proved unsuccessful,

I restarted the Windows Search service and manually forced it to recompile its index, reset the File History settings by deleting its folder in the Application Data directory, ran the System File Checker, and just to be sure rebooted my computer and reformatted the external drive - all to no avail. My error logs are full of failures due to trying this many times, but the one below is the most recent one, corresponding to the latest try.

- <Event xmlns="">
- <System>
<Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-FileHistory-Core" Guid="{B447B4DB-7780-11E0-ADA3-18A90531A85A}" />[code].....

Search / Indexing - 8.1 Doesn't Find Files

Feb 7, 2014

After updating to 8.1, windows search is slow, even though I disabled Bing and I don't have extra locations in the index, and it doesn't find files even though they are in subfolders of My Documents. This problem is very outstanding with Word files.

I tried deleting the Data folder, and rebuilding the index, but to no avail. I need a way to search for text within files, so the "Everything" app does not seem to be the solution. I am trying out AgentRansack right now, and it does work, but it is slow and uses up almost all the CPU when it is searching.

Microsoft Indexing Makes Mouse Pointer Jump

Jul 11, 2014

My OCZ Agility 3 SSD started to fail and temporarily I have replaced it with a Crucial MX100 SSD, whilst the RMA is being dealt with.

I had multiple copies of Windows 8 on the old SSD managed by Bootit Bare Metal and I copied these to the replacement SSD. Now when I start Windows 8 with new SSD the mouse pointer keeps jumping and a little blue circle appears by it.

If I go to the Task Manager and stop the Microsoft Windows Search Indexer the mouse stays still and behaves normally.

Running Service Won't Start On Reboot

Feb 10, 2014

In order to run Corel Draw X6 I need a service to run in the background, called PSI-SVC-2, also known as Protexis Licencing V2.

Under Task Manager/Services it's always default set to "Stopped". No matter how many times I set it to start automatically, it always resets to Manual after a restart.

Is there another tweak I need to make to have this particular service run on reboot?

Service Cannot Be Started - No Enabled Devices Associated

Nov 28, 2013

The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. I think this was "Application information" service.

The problem is that now I can't run app called Turbo Service Manager to backup, services.msc, regedit, elevated cmd to use "net start", msconfig, even *.reg files won't launch. I can't launch Safe Mode through metro because my USB mouse and keyboard disconnects at the moment I should choose "4".

Windows 8 64bit - The Audio Service Is Not Running

Aug 22, 2013

What has happened is that when I first started up my laptop this morning, it seems the audio is disabled. Along with this, the wireless connection is also disabled. Windows attempts to fix both of these problems, but only fixes the wireless. I've restarted multiple times to no avail, and each time, the wireless connection must be fixed by Windows. I've had this laptop for about a month, nothing has ever gone wrong.

when I go on Youtube, every video I attempt to watch stutters around for the first few seconds and/or goes directly to an error screen. I'm sure this has to be something with flash or something in general, considering it just started occurring with these other problems. I'm hoping I won't have to backup files and restore the laptop to the factory default, I was an idiot and deleted the only system restore point I had from a few days ago. I completely forgot system restore points only effect installed programs and Windows files.

Here is some more specific information towards my audio problem -

This is what happens when I attempt to start Windows Audio in Services.
