    Windows 10 1703 - Windows Search Working All Time


    Guys i upgraded Windows 10 1607 to 1703 a few days ago, i guess 3 days. Everything at update process works fine but since i upgraded Windows Search İndexing keeps working and getting my %30 cpu... It never ends... I use ssd it shouldnt take so long.. even with 5400 rpm it always works at background slowly and stable..

    But 3 days non stop %30 cpu.. even i am at game..

    FX 4300 CPU
    10 GB RAM
    120 GB SSD + 500 GB HDD

    İs that a bug ? I dont want to disable that service.. i shouldnt have to do it..

    Hi, this can happen if the system is having difficulty accessing something, or if the index is corrupt.

    Go to Control Panel, Indexing Options, and make a note of what you have currently set to be indexed.

    You can get the detail from that top Window using the arrows.

    Now to hopefully get control, disable indexing of anything that is not on C: - if there is.
    You should see the number of indexed items reduce if you untick anything.

    - Have you ever changed these from the default settings to index other data?

    Now run the troubleshooter (bottom left of that picture) and post the result.

    Now delete and rebuild the index

    Don't wait for that to complete.

    Meanwhile, check your disk: download and run Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) and post a screenshot of its GUI for each disk.
    to post a screenshot use the Insert Image icon above your post (left of the video icon)

    If that's ok, run chkdsk to check your file system.
    From an admin command prompt
    [Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
    chkdsk C: /F
    Your PC will need to restart.
    Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:
    How do I see the results of a CHKDSK that ran on boot? - Ask Leo!
    Make sure the result is clear or fixed- else do not proceed.

    Now have a look at how indexing is proceeding and advise.

    Thanks for the answer

    Dude i have checked indexing locations. its just ssd c: and hard drive d:

    when i look at task manager hard drive d is inactive for a while.. so it try to index ssd c: but also when i check task manager the windows search just using CPU, no hard drive..

    I am sure windows search service corrupted or buged...

    I just think about stop the service and restart it from services.msc ? will it work ?

    The only thing that i didnt do from your guide is just chkdsk. I am pretty sure hard drive and ssd has not got errors dude. They and windows and also all apps working smooth. I think ms will release a hot fix for it. Its ms's fault about upgrade.

    Hi, try this:
    Use the Resource monitor (Type Res in Cortana’s search box) to see what searchindexer.exe is doing on disk.
    Go to the disk tab, tick the check box for searchprotocolhost.exe (check all instances if you have more than one).
    In the Disk Activity window below you should be able to see the exact file(s) currently processed by the indexing service.
    Please take a screenshot of this and post it.

    If search indexing is working (you say it's not) you'd then:

    In Indexing Options, exclude this file (or files) from what is to be indexed.
