Q: 41,000 Event Log errors in 7 days. Not a clue. This thread is locked from future replies

I've had over 41,000 of these errors show up in my event viewer. They all correspond to Windows Search Service. I don't use it very often at all. I used it today twice, but that is probably it for the last six months. I am running Vista Home Premium. I just can't understand this at all. Any suggestions/questions will be appreciated. Thanks!

See if this works for you, it involves deleting the corrupted Search Index.

"The Windows search index is kept in \ProgramData\Microsoft\Search\Data\Applications\Windows. I simply stopped the search service, deleted all the files in that folder, and restarted the search service".

It may be necessary to show both hidden and system files via Control Panel/ Folder Options.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
