Another index/search problem that I just can't seem to stop, ...and that is the indexing of Microsoft 2007 "Onenote". I've already searched for threads/and read many tutorials on this issue of the indexing & search and read many from Shawn (Brink) and they work for most objects when de-selected in control panel / index options, but with "OneNote", this stubborn sob, will keep adding itself back to the index once its opened the next time.
When in the control panel/index options, their its sits all by itself. Its always listed by itself and is not buried in the users folders where the onenote directories & backup's are.
When I un-tick "OneNote" in Ctrl panel / Index Options and then select rebuild, it remains unlisted, as its not even seen anymore in the list.
But once I open "OneNote", and go to index options, sure enough its listed and checked again, and is being indexed.
I've tried going into Local group policy editor "Search" and tried removing by the path to the OneNote Folders and Files. It was done so by path:
and the backup file as so:
The asterisk attribute is supposed set it to not index anything in that Directory. The asterisk does work in the don't search the following paths before.
I have it set-up that way for other partitions and it works fine, whats simply typed in is "D\*" and so nothing ever in D and the other partitions would be indexed.
But this didn't work for onenote. I could try local group policy editor / search / don't search by certain file extensions, but have not tried that.
I can't see why I should have to do anything more than uncheck in control panel/index options/un-tick "OneNote" and be done with it!
Why is Windows 7 Index keep automatically re-adding 2007 "Onenote" when it gets opened for the first time after having it removed from index. Attachment 112238
