searchindexer.exe

Recommended Posts

On my Windows XP installation there is a program called searchindexer.exe that keeps running in the background. It ends up using like 100 mb of memory and if I terminate the process it just restarts again. Do anyone know which program that uses it, or if it is one of Windows' programs, how do I shut it off?

I'm not sure how you're getting that on an XP machine.  Everything I found on google (something YOU could have done) says it's a Vista app. 

However, I'd assume you can probably go into the services viewer and disable it: Start->Run->services.msc and look for it.

Are you using the Office 2007 beta?

Yeah I use Office 2007 Beta 2. Hmm, according to the last link you showed there is no solution other than uninstalling it :(

Or letting it run it's course and finish indexing (not sure how long that takes).

Hmm, yeah... I wonder what it is indexing because I have indexing turned off in Windows.
