    Windows Search indexing never completes


    The search results for "My stuff" always comes back with this message:

    "These results may be incomplete, search is still indexing your stuff."

    Apparently this is a common complaint, and I have tried the most frequently suggested fix: I went into Indexing Options, and deleted and rebuilt the search index. That took only a couple of hours, but I waited three days just to make sure everything was indexed. Unfortunately, the issue still persists. Are there any other solutions I can try?

    If it is interrupted while scanning, when the machine is supposed to be idle, or a directory is always updating that is in the index, it will never stop.

    You need to delete the folders in there, save, then reboot.

    What folders are those? I have deleted the index and rebuilt it through Indexing Options, but that did not resolve the issue.

    In the Index interface. Just rebuilding it, is not going to fix the problem.
