Disable "Your search might be slow because indexing is not running" message

Q: Disable "Your search might be slow because indexing is not running" message

Hello,
Is there any way to disable the "Your search might be slow because indexing is not running. Click to turn on the index" message?
screenshot
I have disabled windows search service for performance consideration, but this message bar appears every time I am searching for files, and even if I clicking the cross on the right of the bar, next time when I am doing another search it re-appears.
How can I permanently disable it, by registry or other means?

Bob

A: Disable "Your search might be slow because indexing is not running" message

Hi Bob,

I would like to say that this notification will pop up if you disable the Windows Search Service. You can click the bar to turn on
the Index and the notification will disappear.

If you would like to not turn on the Index and still want to disable the
Windows Search Service, I think we cannot remove this alert.

Regards,

Sabrina

When I go to Indexing Options within the Control Panel, the dropdown informs me that "Indexing is not running" and only the Advanced button is available. I really don't seem to be having problems with my searches although many a time when doing a search , there is a banner saying that "Your searches may be slow because index is not running." I will then click the prompt to index.

The searches seem to be fast enough, but I really can't tell if they should be faster.

Even though I have selected to index, when prompted, going into Index Options will still show that the index is not running??? Could it be that this action is only temporary at its time of use?

Once I get indexing working, I would imagine that I would like to choose just those folders where speedy searching would be of benefit, but I'm not sure which files/folder they should be. I'm thinking Pictures, Music, Documents, Program Files (x86), Program Files...or am I way off base?

Need some help hear to straighten this all out.

BTW, I have looked at Brink's excellent tutorials, I'm a little thick here and need some help.

A:"Indexing not running"

Click on Start, type services.msc and press ENter.
Scroll down to Windows Search. Make sure it's Started and the Startup Type is Automatic. If not, double click on it and set the Startup Type to Automatic then start it.

That should make Indexing active.

The message is a waste of my screen real estate. Yes, Protected mode is turned off. Sure it is, I turned it off myself, and it will stay off. Now how do I disable this annoying nag message?
Also the messages about File Downloads. Never once in my life I clicked a download link by mistake. Yes, I'm clicking that dang URL, because I wan't to download that dang file, now get out my way, annoying warning message. How do I disable this one
too? Thank you in advance

A:How do I disable the "Protected mode is currently turned off for the Internet zone" message?

Hi,
Based on my research, this is by design. You cannot disable the warning when you open a new IE windows.

I have a laptop with a USB 1.1 sockets only running Windows XP SP2.

Whenever I plug-in my USB flash drive or wireless card (both of which are USB 2.0 devices), I get the annoying ballon/message pop up stating "This Device Can Perform Faster" (if plugged into a USB 2.0 port etc).

Both devices work fine at 1.1 speeds, and I don't want to be reminded of the fact that I only have a 1.1 socket every time I plug the bl**dy thing in!

Is there any way of making a registry entry/edit or some other way to stop this popping up? I've found plenty of info on how to turn pop-up ballons/messages off altogether, but I only really want to stop this one.

If anyone knows, it'd be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

PS: I've searched on TechNet but that only returns the usual un-related crap.

A:Disable the "This Device Can Perform Faster" balloon/message in Windows XP SP2

In Device Manager, click on the USB host controller, click the Advanced tab and then check the box on the bottom of the window that says "Don't tell me about USB errors." I think you need to do this for each USB controller listed under USB in Device Manager so that the error message will not appear no matter which controller the device gets plugged into.

I've gotten this message at various points when installing certain software. No more than anyone else, I expect. The thing is I don't care that the software hasn't passed Windows' super secret test. This has never stopped me from installing software. I know Microsoft wants to protect me from myself, but I really don't think they know best. So is there a way to blanket disable this message for everything?

If you're talking about the software that comes with hardware, you can turn that off in Control Panel>System>Hardware>Driver Signing by ticking "Ignore". I've never seen any other software warnings but then my software requirements are pretty conservative.

Hi,
Is there a registry setting or option to turn off the message

"other users are logged on"

you get when you try to turn off or restart/ Windows 7, vista, xp etc? (Also ubuntu if it's not off topic)

Whats a "quite command"?

I guess I'm looking for no warning even if other users are logged on and multi RDP.

Also where are the settings to turn on or off the various windows warning messages and notices? (I'm NOT referring to the "action center" messages).

I'm doing a lot of virtual testing and multi RDP etc.

Also how do you go through 2 subnets, where one is a virtual VMWare subnet

Real PC -> Physical router (ADSL Modem Internet gateway) 1 -> Physical sub router 2 -> VMware subnet router -> VMWare workstation.

Thank you.

A:Turn off, disable "other users are logged on" message when restarting

Yeah log the other users off.

Setup the VM to use your on board NIC instead of a virtual NIC on another subnet.

Hi,

Every time when I turn off my computer, the machine shows "Now is safe to turn or your computer" message. I know there is a way to disable this but just don't know how.

I do some search on this website, and found out we can have this fix by enabling the Advanced Power Management Support at Control Panel. However, my computer doesn't have the APM option under the Power Option. I have W2K install on this machine.

I did fix this problem before by editing the registry but just forget how to do it. Hope someone can help me with this. Very thanks a lot.

I have my Toshiba laptop set to turn off the screen while it downloads overnight. Every morning, I find the same problem: the computer has completely locked up with no pointer. I can't do anything, so I have to press and hold the power button to restart the machine. On restarting, the computer gives me the standard "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" error. Yes, I know. Windows doesn't need to tell me this. I know there was an unexpected shutdown because I shut it down, unexpectedly.

I'm not interested in fixing the problem. I've tried, and nothing I do helps. What I want is to simply eliminate the error message. Is there a way to get Windows 7 to stop telling me what I already know? It's very annoying.

A:Disable "Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" message

I figured it out. Tell Windows to quit whining. Go into the Group Policy Editor. Under "Computer Configuration," select "All Settings". Scroll down until you will find an entry labeled "Turn off Windows Error Reporting". Right click on it and select "Edit". Tick "Enabled'. This turns off Windows error reporting.

It doesn't fix the improper shutdown issue, but it's good enough for me and the girls I go out with.

I've seen this posted elsewhere but the proposed solutions don't apply to, or are simply 'solutions' we can't apply in this environment.
We occasionaly see one or both of the following on desktops and laptops alike

Hi.

The title says it all, but let me clarify anyway:

1-The problem mostly occurs when running demos you can find at Pouet.net and rarely (but still do happen) in other application/games.

2- After some testing, I'm, fairly sure the problem is due to the GPU memory being used to the max or near the max. So lower resolution, simpler textures and turning off post processing (like MSAA) should help. It should, but it does not always. I suspect Windows 7 to trigger low resources alert much too easily, in fact giving false positive all the time. Like when decompressing large textures and busting the max VRAM cap, even for a faction of a second. If I find my system sluggish, I will take the necessary action, no need for Windows to interrupt me all the time.

3-Yes, I have searched an answer extensively on Google, here, and other forum, for the last hour. Threads from 2009 to 2014.

4- No, none of the provided suggestions worked as NONE of the suggestions precisely addressed the goal of ***eliminating the popup windows completely.***

In conclusion, I'm asking a simple question that can be answered by yes or no: Do you, yes or no, know how to *disable* the Windows 7 message "Do you want to change the color scheme to improve performance"?

If the answer is yes, please give me the detailed procedure and I will be eternally grateful. If the answer is no, sorry to be blunt, but your wild guesses are of no interest to me. Technically, this thread should have 1 reply and... Read more

A:How to disable "Do you want to change the color scheme" message

Don't know if this will be of any help - I have an i7 and a good gfx card, but I have one program that insists on changing the theme. The prog is the screen recording app Camtasia, and it's really annoying to get interrupted 2 mins into a session. My solution was to create a basic theme that I named 'recording' with no aero etc that I switch to before I do any Camtasia stuff.

R-click the desktop and > personalize, then click Windows 7 basic and tweak desktop, colors etc to your liking. R-click this unsaved theme and give it a name. Then when you are doing your 'demos' or whatever, switch to the basic theme first. It's a PITA, but that's what I have to do on my fairly powerful system (o/c i7-2600K, GTX 750Ti 2GB, 8GB RAM).

Is there some way to stop Windows telling me that the performance is slow?

I get this message: "Windows has detected that your computer's performance is slow", with the option to change to basic theme, or keep the existing. But even when i select to keep it, it still keeps nagging me.

What's even more frustrating, is that the computer runs perfectly fine.

This happens in two cases:

1. I view video in VLC on my secondary monitor (uses 3% CPU, 3GB RAM free...)
2. I run a virtual PC via VMWare (uses 2GB RAM and some CPU, but PC still runs perfectly).

There must be some way to disable this nagging? It's obviously not working like intended (since performance is not slow at all).

A:Disable "Windows has detected slow performance" nagging

You might want to go to Start-Run-Msconfig (type in if needed), then Startup. Go down the list of programs that start up upon boot. Many of those programs on the list can be unchecked. Obvious ones include programs related to Real Player, QuickTime, DVD burner programs,Nvidia,ATI, etc. Uncheck those and reboot.

Also, as a test, disconnect all periphials except your mouse and keyboard and see if the notification occurs.
And as always, run a malware program. Update video drivers.

Here goes: I have 3 computers networked. Everything was fine and normal. Just recently on my machine, I noticed that my .doc files and .xlr files on my machine in "My Documents" or on my "Desktop" would open slow (15-40 sec.). After countless research, and trying many things to correct this issue I noticed that when I go into my internet connection and disable the "Netbios over TCP\IP" in the WINS tab, everything goes back to normal, but now the other 2 machines cannot access my files.

Strange, that when Netbios is enabled it would appear that it is checking something over the Network prior to opening the files. Does anyone know why this is happening or how to correct this?

It is apparent that something has changed on my system, as this does not happen on the other 2 machines.

Running AVG Free and have the Microsoft Firewall turned on at all machines. Strange thing is that it only affects opening files on my machine. the other two are also running AVG Free as well as the Microsoft Firewall turned on. If I am at there machines I can access there files on there machines with no problems(i.e.: no delay)

NOTE: XP Pro on 2 machines (mine and one other hard wired cat5 to router) and 1 machine running XP Home (connected by WIFI to router)

 

A:slow opening files unless I disable "Netbios over TCP\IP"

Try a system restore to before the issue happened.

FWIW, I've seen a similar issue, and it turned out to be a networked printer that was removed from the network and was somehow being queried every time I opened files.

On one system I am getting this error message once every day or two. The hard drive has over 300GB available. The verbatim error message shows nothing in Google.

Now it shows 71MB free. Any thoughts?

A:Error Message "The space on the hard drive is running low" isn't true

so do you have 300 gb? or only 71 mb? because if its 71 mb, u have got some major cleaning to do. I doubt that though, some viruses clutter the hard drive. If you have plenty of room, and your still getting the message then you can follow these instructions to remove the annoying message.

Hello tech helper(s),

Thank you in advance for your assistance. I am running XP on a vanilla PC, and have installed IE 7 and Outlook Express 6. I updated IE 7 just last night, to make sure that that is all in order.

All works except for one thing, and it's so frustrating! When I am in Outlook Express, with my Inbox populated by many messages, and I try to do a "Find Message" on that folder, all that happens is that I get a blank results window, regardless of what search criteria I select.

I searched the forum and found one relevant message from long ago, but the answer to that message is not helpful to me.

I've tried various antidotes. I could try to re-install Outlook Express, but doing so seems challenging. And I fear losing my Inbox messages altogether if I do that.

If you can give any advice, I'll appreciate that. In fact, I'm so desparate I'm willing to pay for some effective help.

Thank you,

A:Message "this computer is not running genuine windows"

You did well for a first post
Sorry for the delay!

You're perfectly correct - uninstalling (or worse, deleting) the WAT update doesn't solve anything, it just hides it.

Let's start with the most likely candidate ...
Check out Device Manager - make sure that you have 'Show hidden devices' enabled - and see if there are any yellow- or red-flagged devices present.
If there are, uninstall them (do not also uninstall all related drivers!)
then reboot twice, and post a new MGADiag report.

If not, then try this.

Please run the following commands in an Elevated Command Prompt

NET STOP CRYPTSVC
REN C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CATROOT2 CATROOT2OLD
NET START CRYPTSVC

once complete, leave the system alone for at least an hour to rebuild the database, then reboot, and run another MGADiag report and post the results.

Note that this may delete your Update History - but all updates will remain installed, and can be viewed in the Installed Updates listing.

When I got this message earlier this month, I searched around, read the posts here etc. After reading about the problem I let windows install KB3024777 to fix the KB3004394(?) problem.

Everything appeared to work. January updates were installed. This was three days ago. But today I got the message again. Don't know how often the message is supposed to come up. I have since cold booted once and it has not come back. Yet. I completely shut this machine down every day at 1AM and let the bios start it at 7:30AM.

I upgraded this machine from xp by totally wiping the disks and using a retail full win7 pro. At least I think it's a full retail. The other boxes have a small upgrade notice on the box. The OS was installed sometime in the fall of 2013 but i did a full restore in I think 12/2013 to fix some problem I had with Quicken

Frequently when I start up Word 2003 (& Xp before that), in Windows XP, I get the message on the bottom left "Running virus scan ..." and it takes forever to open. And the same thing happens sometimes when I open a file. I'm using Norton Anti-Virus and Zone Alarm firewall. They take care of the email virus scanning. I really don't need internal scanning like this that holds me up for so long. How do I put a stop to it?

I keep getting the "Windows - No disk" message when running Spybot or Adaware.

Hi, I'm running Vista home Premium 32bit, I have had the same message on several occasions now when trying to log in form Sleep mode. Get message saying system running low on resources, please use a user logged in. However there is no user logged in. The only way I can get out of this is by rebooting.
Suggestions as to cause and a remedy would be most welcome.

Thanks
Andy

A:Login - "Running low on Resources" message

I have been experiencing the same problem in both x32 and x64 with all versions of Vista and Windows 7 that have multiple logins. Once it goes to sleep and wakes up, the message appears when trying to login. Some of the site suggest resources of RAM but I have 4GB of RAM in all of my systems. Seems as though Microsoft hasn't fixed this problem for many years and cannot believe that more people haven't complained. If anyone has a fix or a bug number, please post.

Thank you,

I got the above error message on booting up. I had this problem once before, about 6 months ago. I found a fix at that time, which is to rename rundll32.exe to some other name eg rundll32.old. The exe gets regenerated, and I never had that problem again. Until today, twice. The "fix" did nor work this time.

The only item which I've installed lately was Google's Browser, Chrome or whatever, and I don't know how to remove it. They refer to a string of code 0xc000000S which means nothing to me. Using XP home (recently reinstalled after reformatting. In spite of this bug, the computer continues working normally

Can anyone explain this to me and suggest what I can do to stop this message appearing. Even though it doesn't seem to do anything, it surely must be doing something! Or is it only informative?

Thanks in adance

This just started about a month or so ago...
I'm sure this little pop up came attached to some program I downloaded, but it's not a large enough
program to even show up when you try to use Install/Remove or Revo uninstaller programs.
I would think that most programs will send out software updates or if I open a program they have
update links built into them.
Disabling the popup doesn't keep the program for looking for updates (or does it?), it just doesn't keep
popping up and being an annoyance, right?
Do I "REALLY NEED IT"? If I need it, then so be it, I just don't want it to be a nuisance and keep
popping up.
Thanks ahead of time....

A:How do I "DISABLE" the popup "Common Software Manager"?

Using a registry editor to search for Common Software Manager might give you the folder and file[s] this utility is in [on the harddrive]. Deleting that folder and said file[s] might be enough. Do not use any universal computer fixit utilities for this; such cause more problems than they fix.

Hi there,

I think the title is self-explanatory. I have installed the Google search provider from the official Google webpage (Make Google your Default Search Engine) on IE 8 and noticed that it does not suggest as I type. I opened "Manage Search Providers" and see "Not Available" besides "Search suggestions".

Any help on this?

Thanks!

A:Cannot enable "Search suggestions" in "Google Search Provider"

At the bottom of the Manage Add-Ons page you will see, "Learn more about search engine preferences" click on that.

Scroll down to, and click on "To turn search suggestions on or off" it will lay it out for you there.

A couple weeks ago, I got the fake antivirus trojan. I removed it, however, with MalwareBytes. (it didn't do anything malicious, it was more annoying than harmful. I also did not download anything from the internet while this virus was on my PC.) However, ever since then, this bizzarre trojan is still lingering on my system. It only effects Google searches; whenever I search on Google, it is EXTREMELY slow. Also, most results seem to be okay, but every 10th result I click or so redirects to a search page on "BestOfSearch.org", than to a site, almost always "Toseeka.com" or "Shopica.net". (for example, if I search "example" on Google, it will take a minute to do it, than if I click on "example.com/example.html" on time, it will be normal, but if I do it again, it will go to the site, but the site title will be "/example.html", than it will redirect to BestofSearch and than to the designated generic spam portal of it's choice)

I have used both SS&D and MB to scan my hardrive, but did not find anything. Any help is very, very welcome.

Outlook 2003:I'm a massive fan of outlooks Search folders, I receive in excess of 400 emails per day, of which approximately 250 need my attention, even if to reply back and give someone an answer.

A problem I find is that I am so busy with my emails, I often need to clean out my inbox. I do this by setting up basic search folders such as "all emails from my team which are in my inbox only" or "any email sent to me which was part of a distribution list in my inbox only" etc...

This is great for filtering my mail and I would like to create a rule as such:

"All mail within my inbox which has been either replied to forwarded by myself".

I can't seem to find any options and I'm hoping an Outlook guru can help

If you don't know the answer, can you try googling it for me to see if you can find anything, loads of heads are better one...

Hi,

I'm currently running Windows 7 and over the past month, I've been tortured by this persistent problem. When browsing the internet (on any internet connection, connected to any router, using any browser), new tabs will occasionally open up with no content and the title "search.google-analytics.com" Eventually the browser will say the page cannot be found. While this is annoying enough, it is also coupled with random onsets of painfully slow browsing, and pages will sometimes not fully load or load with garbled html.

This seemingly small problem seems to be indicative of something more sinister. Coincident with the start of this issue, my Symantec Endpoint Protection detected suspicious files and "removed" them. Since then, it has consistently re-detected these same files, in varying quantities. They seem to vary in type from Trojan to Infostealer between scans, and the filenames are nonsense number strings.

At some point, I installed Malwarebytes, and it too detected high-threat files and "removed" them, even requiring a reboot on several occasions. However, none of these removals actually helped.

The final twist is that yesterday, Symantec stopped finding suspect files and Malwarebytes stopped opening (it simply doesn't respond when opened, even when run by administrator). As you can probably guess, the browsing problems persist.

The requested log files are below. Thanks in advance! (I do NOT have an access to a ... Read more

Hi all,

All my USB ports (which are suppose to be 2.0) have been giving me
"this device can perform faster" notifications. This has resulted in
very slow transfers - for example, 700MB of data takes 15 minutes.

What I've tried but still received "this device can perform faster" notifcation and slow transfer each time:

- checked that "enhanced host controller" is showing under devmgmt
(see screencap: Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet)
- checked BIOS that all USB settings are high speed/2.0
- tested on every port
- tested more than one USB 2.0 device
- checked for conflicts by removing all USB devices and then only testing one device at a time
- checked for updated drivers (notification that latest is installed)

Specs:

- Windows XP SP2
- Intel D865PERL motherboard

Not sure what else to try. Any help would be very much appreciated - thanks in advance.

A:"Windows is not genuine" message and extremely slow

The MGADiag report was run while in Safe Mode - which means that a lot of useful data is missing.
Please try booting to normal mode and running another MGADiag report from there - but I suspect that the main problem is actually nothing to do with the WGA notification (which is probably a result of a race condition)

Let's have a look at the Event logs....

Open Event Viewer
click on the Windows logs entry in the left pane to expand it.
Now click on the Application entry - wait while it loads.
Click on 'File' in the menu bar and select Save...
Save the file as Appevt.evtx

Hi TechGuy,

I'm having some recent problems on my laptop. When I log-in and start using it, the performance starts slowing down. When I look at the Task Manager, I notice that the task called Explorer.exe takes up a lot of my CPU. In a couple of minutes, I also start getting Internet Explorer windows to pop-up on my screen (I normally use Firefox) with advertisements suggesting that my computer is infected and some software downloads that could help. I recently installed McAfee Total Works, or whatever they call their 10-in-1 software which is supposed to do it all. I ran several scans, and on some of them, if did find and disable the Generic.dx trojan. Even though it claims it is doing something, I don't notice any changes - Explorer.exe continues to bog me down, and the IE windows keep popping up to the point that I cannot use my computer effectively anymore.

Any pointers would be truly appreciated!!

I'm very tired of seeing this message booting me to desktop just to ask me if I want to change the color scheme because it perceives my computer is running slow. Load up Batman AC? 10 minutes in focus changes from said full-screen app to this completely unnecessary 'warning'. Battlefield 3? Same thing. Assassin's Creed? Same thing. Skyrim? Oh of COURSE same thing.... I dont need Windows to tell me that my resources are being used when I KNOW they are being used...

Am I really going to have to go into Properties and Compatibility mode for EVERY game I play? Why cant such a large money gobbling corporation be intelligent enough to know that when I click on the "Keep current settings and never show me this message again" means I NEVER WANT TO SEE THAT DAMN MESSAGE EVER AGAIN, FOR ANY GAME???

Sorry, its just ridiculous that I have clicked that button so many times yet it continues to show! It specifically says "Keep the current color scheme and don't show this message again" Yet even after clicking said button it still shows... Annoying!

My computer is running slow, hangs and I have frequent "not responding" & "not responding due to a long running script" errors. I have done numerous virus scans and scans with Malwarebytes, Spywareblaster, Hijackthis, etc., but I am unable to locate the problem. I would appreciate any help you can offer regarding this.

Not sure what I have installed and caused the above problem. The internet connection or to be precise, the IE/Netscape Navigator is running very slowly even when the Network Receiving smooth data. i.e. the network connection from I see is running reasonably alright. But the loading page of IE or netscape doesn't seem to be right. And also, a lot of IE page when browsing, turn to "Blank Page"! The URL showed on the address bar is only "http://". It repeats the same thing when I clicked "Back" button.

Even when there's no any online programmes such as IE, messengers and downloading programme is running, the connection flow is still large. I suspect there might be some malwares or adwares running at the background which I can't find them by seeing "process" of "Ctrl-Alt-Del".

I'd like to back up (and be able to restore upon win7 reinstall) all my heavily-customised Indexing Options settings.

e.g. I have VERY customised list of file types that I have ticked in the Advanced Options, to the "Index Properties and File Contents" type instead of just "Properties" - which is kind of essential for *really* properly searching my computer and my documents. Like publisher files, have text in them that I really need to be able to find, and by default PUB is set to Properties only....so I have many file types like this ticked to actually be properly indexed.

And what a pain it would be to have to manually go through and tick every one upon system reinstall (not to mention, remember/note down what ones that i ticked, beforehand!).

Are the settings stored somewhere in the registry? In some system file inside windows/USER folder?

Let's hunt down for where it's stored. Nothing in windows can't be backed up.

Thanks.

Offline Files, Start Menu and Users.


And you could uncheck the selects.

This is a resurection of an old unresolved Vista Post, and it also happens in Windows 7.
====================================
Original subject - Start Menu - program search issue
I use Windows Mail for my daily email tasks, and would like to be able to
open the program by using the vista search bar built into the start menu. The
problem is, when i search for "mai" it brings up Windows Mail, and I can hit
enter and load the program. However, when I search for "mail", it returns:
"No items match your search." I have it set to index both the start menu and
my programs directory, and have even tried to rebuild the index.

It seems kind of strange that Vista would recognize that when I type "mai" I
want my mail programs, but when I actually type "mail", it gets confused...
and this in turn has -me- confused.

We had this computer built at around mid ~ late 2010 with this specs:
- AMD Phenom II X3
- 2 Gb RAM (now at 4 Gb RAM) DDR3
- Nvidia GeForce 9500 GT 1 Gb (now at GeForce GTS 450 2 Gb)
- 300 Gb HDD (now at 500 Gb HDD)
- 500 Watts (now at 700 Watts) PSU
- DVD Optic Drive

Since having built the system unit, it had once issues with its mainboard, HDD, and PSU and thus was replaced while other changes were meant to be an upgrade. Gaming with this specs has been of ease until as of late when frequent slow motions occur whenever I run graphics-intensive games which occurs randomly and lasts for about several seconds up to a minute or so of slow motion. The issue arose after having had replaced the HDD. Since then, slow motions occur whenever I'm gaming graphics-intensive games. One such game where I experiences slow motions is Saint's Row IV. Having had the game option auto-detect the optimized setting for my system specs which was at high and runs at almost, if not, 60 fps smooth minus the frequent slow motions. Also, there are cases when the system hungs when semi- or idle and had to be resetted to work normally again.

As of posting time, installed on this computer is an Nvidia GeForce driver of 320.49 for the graphics card.

Note, also, given the system specifications, it could run games from the present at low ~ mid settings and sometimes at high with smooth frames at 1024x768 default screen resolution of the monitor. Any higher than that cause black screen issues... Read more

I have a piece of software that periodically fails for some unknown reason. I have pretty much given up on trying to figure out what its problem is. I simply respawn the process if it fails to respond or no longer exists. The process runs several times a
minute. Occasionally, I get an error message saying my software "has stopped working" followed by another messagebox saying my software "is restarting". And then it restarts my process. This is beyond stupid since my process requires command
line arguments that are not being provided when this restart occurs. I simply want to disable these messages or at least
disable this auto restart. Is there any way to do this?

For some time now, double clicking on a folder no longer opens it as usual. Instead, double clicking on a folder causes a separate Explorer Search window to open, with that folder's name under the "search in" tab. In fact, when i right click on a folder, the first and bold-faced option is "search", as opposed to "open". So to open any folder I have to right click it and hit open, which is slow and annoying. I cleaned out my registry, spyware, viruses, everything, and still this problem persists. I also checked the Mouse control panel, nothing there.

Anyone know what's going on with my computer?

Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit, boots up and runs fine as long as "Windows Search" is NOT checked in "Services".

When I run msconfig in the Services Tab, that is the Windows Search checkbox that I'm talking about.

If the box is checked, computer will start up, allow me to click on my user icon and load everything as if it's ready to go. The cursor moves with the mouse but does not respond to mouse clicks, also the computer does not response to the keyboard. If I click the start button, I get the spinning round wait icon (or whatever that is called). It also runs fine in Safe Mode.
I tried sfc.exe /scannow I have all the latest windows updates. I have run several different anti-virus, anti-malware programs. I ran chkdsk. Do I need Windows Search checked in Services? What does Window Search do? Is that where you can search from the Start Button area?

A:boots up then freezes when "Windows Search" is checked in "Services"

Which flag did you use with chkdsk - /F ?? My first guess is that Search is trying to index and snagging on something - either a file system problem or bad disk sectors. The /F flag deals with the filesystem. If you haven't tried /R, for sectors, do so, but only after backing up important data, and perhaps taking a system image if the system's current state is valuable to you. I prefer to run chkdsk from a WinPE/RE boot disk so I can study its output at leisure.

Sometime over the last few weeks Google's "More" drop-down and its "Search Tools" menu items have quit working in IE10. The other buttons that let you select web, images, shopping, etc. still work properly.

The "More" and "Search Tools" buttons get focus when the mouse is over them and they animate when clicked but nothing happens. I have Google Chrome and Apple's Safari installed and the buttons work properly on these browsers.

I've googled it but most of the posts found are about a not-quite-the-same problem of the buttons just working momentarily. At any rate, I tried the fix [clearing cache and cookies] that some of the posters said worked but it didn't make any difference.

I've disabled all of the ad-ons and the problem is still there. I re-enabled each add-on one at a time and tried it but none of them had any effect.

I've disabled my Norton Security Suite and the problem still exists.

I've reset IE and, other than losing all of my saved passwords, it too made no difference.

I think this might be a useful clue.

I noticed that for all of the buttons that are working, when I pass the mouse pointer over them it displays a URL down in the status bar. However, for the two that are not working nothing is displayed. It appears that the controls associated with these buttons either don't exist or are being blocked.

Does anyone have the solution for this, or at least and idea of what the problem is?

Thanks in advance for ... Read more

A:Google "More" and "Search Tools" buttons no longer working...

Hello Howard,

you can observe one thing here. All the menu items are just links. But More and Search Tools menu items are different. More is drop down menu and Search Tools also kind of drop down but with sub menu items.

So it seems like there are some script errors with your IE 10 browser.

But i am sorry, re installing IE is the only option i can suggest.

I have some kind of malware on my system and I need help to remove it.

Symptoms: After performing a web search using google and click my desired site, my browser is usually redirected to one of the following sites: zapmeta, netster, romemaster, stopzilla, toseeka. It's different everytime.

What I've done thus far: I've run Spybot and Ad-Aware during a "safemode" session. These found a lot of "threats," which I removed. This did not fix the problem. I then tried to restore my computer to an earlier date, but that failed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

A:"windows running real slow plz help"

I'm no HJT log expert nor do I claim to be but just as a suggestion "cidaemon.exe" is the Windows Indexing Service. It has been known to use a lot of resources and slowing systems down. Most of us stand alone computer users really don't need this service running. It indexes files to speed up the search feature.

To disable go to "Start" >> "Control Panel" >> "Administrative Tools" >> "Services"

Look for Indexing Service and double click on it. This will bring up service properties.

Where you see "Startup type", click the blue arrow and set to "Disable".

Where you see "Service status" click on "Stop".

Click "Apply", then "OK"

Hey guys - lately my computer has been running slow. All around slow - programs taking longer to respond, webpages taking longer to load. Its just abnormally slow. I've run my anti-virus/spybot/adaware and haven't found any worms or trojans or viruses. Can I run a hijack this log and post it, then get feedback from you guys? If so, where can I download it, and when downloaded, should I make its own folder so that the logs are all in one place? I heard that somewhere. Thanks

How do I search on "<#EEEE#>" and select only the "EEEE". I'm a teacher and I use styles to include quiz answers in a document. I then change the font size to "1", or to "hidden". I review the answers in class using a projector, and I want to reveal the answers one at a time.
A properly constructed wildcard would speed up this process a lot because the answer may be a word, a few words or a paragraph. So double clicking doesn't work to well.
I think that in Regular Expressions this is referred to as &quot;lazy search&quot; and &quot;greedy search&quot; Lazy search selects only EEEE and Greedy search selects What I want is a lazy wildcard expression.

A:Wildcard Search "lazy search" and "greedy search"

Are you talking about inside a document search? Or filename search? If inside a document, get an editor that supports regular expression search. For free editors, some of the Scintilla based editors, like SciTE will do it. Also search freeware sites such as sourceforge.net softpedial.com snapfiles.com filehippo.com etc..

There's a Windows port of the Linux vi editor called Vim. It's free and very powerful. It's a bit quirky to acclimate to, but it can do very powerful things in a few lines. Paragraph operations impossible to do practically in other editors can be done in Vim. You have to absorb some learning curve. But if you take to it you probably won't want to be without it. It's different than most Windows based editors in that it has "edit mode" and "command mode." A hotkey combination toggles the modes. When you get used to it you'll find yourself swapping modes without thinking, like shufflingh a deck of cards. It will either make you an editing whiz or a person seeking therapy for schizophrena.

When I plugin an external USB hard disc or USB stick it appears that Windows 7 pops up a dialog window asking me:

"Do you want to scan and fix removable disc?"

After reading a while in Internet I saw two methods for disabling these popups:

1.) Disabling service "Shell Hardware detection"

2.) enabling "Turn off Autoplay" in gpedit.msc

Whats the difference?

I want be sure that if I plugin a new USB device (like an USB stick or USB printer or USB hard disc) this USB hardware IS successfuly detected and joined by Windows 7.

So I can imagine that the first method is too brutal because it prevents inclusion of new USB devices

Is this correct?

If yes: Why is it recommended so often for avoiding the popup?

Peter

A:Disable popup "Do you want to scan and fix remov.device""? 2 methods?

You get that message because Windows detects something wrong with the file system on the device. This can happen if the device was unplugged without "Safely Removing Hardware", and a transfer was not complete.

The methods you mention just mask the problem.

You can let Windows scan and fix the drive, choose: fix file system errors.
or, do a full format on the drive, not the quick format.
Or, run Chkdsk /f X: manually, X = the problem drive letter, you may have to run it more than once.

It is always a good idea to move all data off the drive first, then copy it back after the fix is complete. This also fixes bad file problems that can contribute to the error.

The drive probably has it's "Dirty Bit" set. This is a single Hex value that tells Windows the file system is no good. Chkdsk and formatting will often reset the dirty bit, but sometimes not on the first attempt.

To see if the dirty bit is set:
Open a command prompt > Start > type: cmd > right-click on Command Prompt and choose “Run as administrator”
and then type:
fsutil dirty query x:
(substitute the letter "x" with the drive letter that is giving you problems)

If the dirty bit is set you will get a message that "Volume X is DIRTY".

Keep running chkdsk /r , or chkdsk /f /r until the dirty bit clears.

Using the Windows Classic theme, can the 'All Programs' & 'Search' (which is useless) be completely removed from the Start Menu?
I'm talking about the entry All Programs bar and the Search entry, or can the useless MS Search be replaced with one of the many substitutes?

I do not mean the Search on the right pane.

I do use "all programs auto expander" to solve the annoyance of always clicking on the All programs to get the folders to show, but it would be superior to also get rid of that line all together. Or is this another futile request as it is to get rid of that equally useless Explorer bar??

A:Can the "All Programs/Back" & "Search" entries be removed?

The search bar is so very useful in 7, but to each his own. Try this:

For All Programs, this also applies to 7

This afternoon, all of a sudden, I couldn't log into Outlook, Gmail, enter an address in IE or use Google. Whenever I entered a "r" the "Run" box would appear and whenever I entered an "e" the search box would appear. Most of the letters worked OK but a lot of them brought up something else. This has never happened before. I tried using "System Restore" all the way back to 12/31 but that did not help. I have been running ESET NOD32 (it's 97% finished and although it hasn't found any virus infections, it has located numerous errors opening files.)

Then, all of sudden, the situation corrected itself and I was able to log into Outlook and Gmail and use Google.

Groan... another 'my PC is slow thread'... right?

My apologies.

Truth is, I don't know if the performance I'm getting out of this old Dell should be considered slow, or if this is just the way it is. So, I'm asking for your opinion. Here's what I'm on...
System:
Microsoft Windows XP
Home Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 3

Dell Computer Corporation
Dell DIMENSION DIM2350
Intell(R)
Celeron(R) CPU 2.20 GHz
2.19 GHz, 1.00 GB of RAMClick to expand...

The only items that I allow to run in the background, AFAIK, are avast!, WinPatrol, Comodo Firewall, and TClockEx.

I certainly think it runs slower than some of the newer PCs that I use at work, but I just don't know if it runs slower than them because it is what it is, or if something that I can regulate/fix/adjust/remedy is affecting the performance.

So what do you guys think? How can I find out what is and what is not?
 

A:I don't even know if this is considered to be "running slow". Is it?

The Celeron processor is certainly a budget low-performance processor. But the easiest and cheapest way to improve performance is to add more system memory, but when I checked the technical spec., the max is 1 GB for the motherboard (2 x 512MB). Looks like you may have to replace it and get a faster laptop.

Following advice from others, I have tried to remove or disable Microsoft's indexing feature from XP as it slows my system.
I have marked my hard drives so that the indexing service is not allowed to access it within the properties for the drive.
I have run "services.msc" and disabled the startup of the indexing service.
Despite all of this, the service stills starts when I power up the computer, as indicated by the magnifying glass icon in the system tray. The start up status of the indexing service is still shown as disabled.

Does anyone know how to get rid of this annoying feature please?

Many thanks,
