I sometimes wish we could go back to the windows 95 method of search. I have never like the windows search service and it's even more annoying now. It's causing Outlook to crash and causing a bunch of errors in the event viewer. I don't want to troubleshoot it I just want it off.
So, this annoying message now comes up in outlook when searching. I want this to go away too. Search performance will be impacted because a group policy has turned off the Windows Search Service.
This is a nice discussion on this topic. Unfortunately it's a dead end and there isn't a whole lot of other useful information that I've been able to come across. For some reason that discussion is locked...
