Windows Search Service will not start, Error: "The Windows Search service on local computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs":

Symptoms:
Windows Search Service may not start and when attempting to start the service manually, you may get the following error:

========
Services
========
"The Windows Search service on local computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs"
===
OK
===

Cause:
You may see this issue if there are missing subkeys or registry entries under the following registry location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Search\CrawlScopeManager\Windows\SystemIndex
Or if there are corrupted log files at the following location:

C:\windows\system32\config\TxR

Note: The above regisrty key is unique to each machine, so should not be replaced manually.

Resolution:
To resolve this issue, delete all files with .BLF and .REGTRANS-MS extension in the following directory:

C:\windows\system32\config\TxR

Note: The files in the folder location above are hidden and will thus not be visible unless you set the system to not Hide Protected Operating System Files under Tools - Folder Options.

Once these files are deleted, reboot the machine. Once rebooted, observe that the Windows Search service has already started and is in process of rebuilding the Index.

Note: You may observe High CPU while the Search Index is being rebuilt.

Windows 7 hangs at a black screen on shutdown when printing to a Bluetooth printer.

How to restore your personal files after you perform a custom installation of Windows Vista or of Windows 7

Introduction:
This article describes how to restore personal files after you perform a custom installation of Windows Vista or of Windows 7.

In some scenarios, you may be unable to perform an upgrade from an earlier version of Windows. If you cannot upgrade, you may have to perform a custom installation. When you perform a custom installation of Windows Vista or of Windows 7, Windows creates a Windows.old folder that contains the files from your previous system. You may want to recover your personal files from the Windows.old folder, and move them to the custom installation of Windows.
