Running Windows 7 on a low-powered laptop for karaoke

I'm finding that Searchindexer.exe is hogging resources and slowing the computer down considerably.

Opening Task Manager and right-clicking on the program, selecting T to stop the task and then OKing closes the prog, but it then re-opens withing minutes of it's own volition.

The Find option in Windows Explorer can be very useful but searchindexer is a large millstone to carry around my neck as a consequence of searching.

Advice welcomed.

IIRC it's in the Local Machine Policies in Group Policy Editor...

Mine recently started hogging 100% so Ive permanently turned it off

Edit - I can still search even with this turned off, though it may not be as fast as its not cached Wink

Could also try updating to Windows 10 for free...

If your Win 7 install, is kosher that is.
