Windows 7: Windows Search Index not working

23 Jun 2019   #31

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit (Service Pack 1)

Three years on and I still have this problem of not being able to switch on the indexing.

I have a Sony Windows 7 computer that has never been connected to the internet, hence an unaffected programme and the indexing on that works fine.

Is there a folder / programme on the Sony that I could copy to the Samsung to rectify this?
