Windows 7: Error 7042 - Windows Search Index Corrupt

28 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 7 Pro x64
Error 7042 - Windows Search Index Corrupt

Over the last few days, when I turn my laptop on, it freezes before fully loading windows. I checked the Event Log, which contains many source: search errors.

I've searched the internet for causes and fixes for this issue, but I'm unable to resolve it. The only fix I've had was what I've advised below:

I completed the cmd: sfc /scannow task, which recorded no errors, and the DWORD line in regedit for setupcompleted is already set to 1.

I've noticed in the perfmon report, it says no AV installed, but in the security action centre, Kaspersky is reported as running and active. I've purposefully set UAC to no notifications, as I get tired of all the messages that come up. I trust my AV software to notify me of any intrusion or heuristic analysis, and do not download anything without it being verified.

I've attached the BSOD required zip folder, and my laptop specs are as follows:
Clevo P170HMx 17'' Full HD LED
Windows 7 pro x64 - original installation by retailer (BD4U computers) Disc provided
i7-2920XM processor
Nvidia GeForce GTX 485M GPU
8GB 1666 Kingston
2x 500gb Seagate Momentus XT SSD
8x BD-RE 24x DVD

My laptop was delivered in April, so is only a couple of months old.

I do hope I can get this issue resolved here. All those web pages I've viewed are never completed as resolved, with some users last post being 2 yrs old.

I look forward to hearing from someone that can help. Many thanks in advance.
