    Hi Howie, welcome to NST,
    This cropped up recently
    http://neosmart.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2426
    but none of our suggestions seemed to help.
    Read through and see if there's anything of any use to you.

    (I take it you've tried admin tools/ services, and started it again ?)

    I'm not the best person to answer questions about windows search, I turned off the search indexing as just about my first action after installing Vista, if that's what you're talking about.
    It's turned on/off by right clicking on each partition in explorer, and ticking/unticking the indexing box in properties.
    I don't use Outlook or any part of MS Office suite, so I don't even know what the search does in that, or how it's controlled.
    Stick around, there are plenty here who do.
