Thanks again but these do not appear to apply. Here's why:
  • Sorts in Explorer are fast
  • My Windows Search service can't be turned on
  • I get Error 2, not Error 5
  • Chkdsk returns no errors
  • Defrag runs fine
  • In Explorer, when I type a search term in the upper right hand box, the search does run. But as stated above, Windows Search service can't be turned on and none of the Advanced features are available. And, in Outlook 2010, entering a term in the Search Inbox search field results in an endless loop search that never finishes and produces no results.

Start Search broken, doesn't return search.
I'm not really sure how to explain this and this is my first post so I think I will just show you, yeah, that's probably the best way. The best way I see to explain it is instead of a list of the files and programs found in the start search showing up it just shows a few files like Documents.file,...
