Windows 7: Event Viewer Search Error "iehistory://"

Event Viewer Search Error "iehistory://"

Hello, I guess this isn't a huge issue since its more of an annoyance than anything. I uninstalled Internet Explorer and configured my Indexing Options so it wouldn't include the location used for IE history (I thought?). But this error pops up from time to time in the Event Viewer. I have searched so many places for clues but came up with nothing so I turned here. Not sure of the easiest format to display the errors and settings so here is a compiled image of the Event Viewer and Indexing Options.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I understand that the Gatherer can't find the file/location because it doesn't exist?

I tried searching the internet for "S-1-5-21-3684526760-1838744142-3877755193-1001" but no results came up. But after searching my computer I found a "S-1-5-21-3684526760-1838744142-3877755193-1001_UserData.bin" file in the C:\Windows\System32\wdi\{86432a0b-3c7d-4ddf-a89c-172faa90485d} directory. Not sure what this means although I'm not going to try deleting it.

Is this something that just happens if you uninstall Internet Explorer or could it have been caused when I used CCleaner and it was still set to remove IE data even though it was uninstalled.

Again, this isn't a critical thing so if no solution can be found no worries. Just thought I'd ask, thanks!

Hello !!

Since Internet Explorer's rendering engine is also used throughout Windows and with third-party applications as an embeddable component, it won't completely uninstall—only the executable is actually removed. So even if you move Internet Explorer the traces would be still there.

Hope this helps,
