Why not just turn off indexing? – soandos Mar 21 '12 at 11:29
Disable indexing. You could also allow the indexing to complete. Of course it should not be crashing so reinstalling your operating system is a good idea. – Ramhound Mar 21 '12 at 11:31
Windows XP or Windows 7? – Joe Taylor Mar 21 '12 at 11:32
  • Click the Windows "start" button.
  • Type services.msc into the "run" or "search" box and press Enter.
  • Find "Windows Search" in the list and click the Stop button.
