Whenever a search is performed in Windows 7 on a folder that is not indexed, Windows throws up a banner at the top of the Explorer window (below the address bar) blabbing about Indexing and asking you to turn it on and index the folder:
After the thousandth or so time, that warning/prompt/banner flashing and its
[x] needing to be clicked gets to be really annoying. I heard you the first time!!!
Worse, this still occurs even when the Indexing service is disabled, and Indexing is un-selected and all of the relevant options.
(Windows is acting like a stupid person who cannot understand a simple concept like yes, I heard you the first thousand times, but no, I don’t want to use it, now leave me alone! and so keeps bugging you anyway.)
Is there a way to disable the banner short of hacking
What’s particularly aggravating is that I have already disabled and removed the Indexer from Windows and yet it still tries to use it and then complains when it can’t. Well duh; it’s been removed:
