Windows 7 Search Service Corruption

[ Edited ]

Hello all,


After running CCleaner64 (v3.11.0.1550) 64-bit, I started getting event logs indicating that the Windows 7 Search Service could not start due to corruption. These logs did not go away upon reboot so I downloaded  a Microsoft "Fix it" program to "Fix Windows Search When it Crashes or is Not Showing Results." So, I ran it and it reported that it fixed the corrupted Windows 7 Search Service. Thereafter, the logs stopped.


The Fix it can be downloaded here:




P.S.  Yeah; I know, I know .... If it ain't broke then don't fix it!
