Weird Windows 8 Preview Indexing Service

Hi all,

Do you all normally disable Indexing Service on your drive?


My experience with Windows XP, Vista and 7. Disabling Indexing Service makes computer lighter and more responsive. However it's the opposite when I disable it in Windows 8.


I would like to ask your experience before and after disabling indexing service in Windows 8.

For me:

Indexing Enabled: More Responsive (Weird)
Indexing Disabled: Laggy, but faster bootup


Does someone post helps you? Give them a kudos as a reward, as they will do better to improve :smileyvery-happy:
