    Windows Search Service Terminated


    Basic problem is slow start-up and very slow opening files and programs. Here is history of the computer...
    1. Original OS was Windows 7
    2. Windows 7 upgraded to Windows 10, all worked OK
    3. Windows 10 updated with Anniversary Update, problem began

    I first looked in the System Log Event Viewer and found dozens of red errors titled as "The Windows Search Service terminated with the following service-specific error: %%2388525884" The error test and the error code is the same for dozens of times, and seems to grow with more use of the computer. Here is what I have tried so far...
    1. Ran SFC SCANNOW, no help
    2. Ran CHKDSK, no help
    3. Tried a Repair of Windows 10, would not repair, except for clean install
      Googled the error and found nothing of help

    I am at a loss as to what to try next, and really don't want to have to do a clean install, so any advice is appreciated.

    You're only giving us a small piece of the event log error. Adding things like the Event ID and any description of what the error is would be helpful.

    I haven't been getting that particular error. Instead I'm getting these every so often (if I leave the Windows Search Service on):

    Event 3104:
    Enumerating user sessions to generate filter pools failed.Details:
    (HRESULT : 0x80040210) (0x80040210)

    It's annoying enough that I've just disabled the Windows Search service for now until they fix it. I know it's not only me, a lot of others are reporting that error since the Anniversary update.

    To be honest, Windows search is one of the first service I disable after every Windows Install and use a third party search engine instead.
    Having said that, since you upgraded from 7 -> 10 - > 10 AU. The Windows Search database might be corrupted. Look under: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Search\Data\Applications\Windows. The database file is Windows.edb. With Windows Search service disabled, delete this file, re-enable Windows Search service and let Windows rebuild the database.

    Qwinn.....Sorry if I wasn't giving enough info...thought the error code would be sufficient. the event ID is 10016 which appears to be a common one and not much help defining my situation. I will look for more info. Tha nks for the reply.

    Topgundcp....thanks so much for the suggestion...I will give it a try as soon as I can (it's another PC) and report back.

    10016 is a permissions error that is actually quite fixable. Can you post the entire event log error when you get back to that PC?

    You got that right. This error is a headache for a lot of people and no one has a solution, just work arounds.
