    Windows 10 Indexing Program


    A little bit ago I got this HP Notebook 15. It was originally running Windows 8.1, but I upgraded it to Windows 10. It was a bit laggy for gaming and in task manager I saw that the indexing program was using a lot of my CPU. So being the person I am, I deleted it even though it was in System32. (Don't judge me.) Then I restarted my PC and now I'm stuck without the indexing program. (I can't search my PC and Cortana is broken.)

    Run SFC scan, it will restore deleted files.

    You can use alternative tools to search.

    Hmmm... That didn't work. When I type in sfc /scannow /offbootdir=D:\ /offwindir=C:\windows, It prints "The arguments passed to sfc are invalid. The offline windows directory specified points to the online system.'

    Use option 3, just run CMD as admin and enter this:

    sfc /scannow
