No Indexing Options in Contol Panel

Posted: 02-17-2009, 08:15 PM

I am using Windows Home Premium. There is no indexing options tab in my
control panel under System and Maintenance. The Windows Search service
is started, and there are no Administrative logs on the problem. The
checkbox on each drive property windows is checked for indexing the
applicable drives.

My search results are totally incomplete--it misses lots of obvious
file name searches.

Anyone have a clue as to what is going on?

Indexing you will find in Services where you can disable it if needed

An alternate way to get to it is to type Indexing Options in the search box
at the bottom of the Start Menu. That is what I usually do because it is
faster than going through Control Panel.

I had "Indexing Options" disappear from Control Panel in Windows 7...
Nothing brought it up, it totally vanished....
I had to reinstall Win7 to get it back.

I know I've seen it in there, and maybe already disabled it, but I can't
find it now. Is it called simply "Indexing"/ Or is there something in
front of it? In other words, what is the full name in the list of
Services?

thx,
-tom
