I have an error when I'm trying to start Windows Search service. My search in the start menu doesn't work without this service.

Error 87: The parameter is incorrect

  • Have you used the SFC and DISM tools to repair your installation? Are you connected to a domain? Did you at any point attempt to disable Cortana? – Ramhound Nov 16 '15 at 15:28
  • What does it mean: SFC and DISM? I tried to use default windows troubleshot fixer, but it can't help me. Cortana is not available for my country, and in task list I haven't Cortana process. – neustart47 Nov 16 '15 at 15:38
  • Yes, i connected to corporate domain – neustart47 Nov 16 '15 at 15:40
  • Do some research on how to run SFC and DISM to verify the integrity of your system installation. Verify the Service isn't being disable by a group policy. – Ramhound Nov 16 '15 at 15:55

Try rebuild your index...

Control Panel -> Indexing Options -> Advanced -> Rebuild

and I also suggest to move your database to another drive as the database tends to grow fast...

Control Panel -> Indexing Options -> Advanced -> Index Location

  • Rebuild didn't help. Index location field is non-active – neustart47 Nov 16 '15 at 15:53
  • If you are in a corporate Environment you should ask your local Administrator. Maybe re-installing the Feature will help – Matze Nov 16 '15 at 15:55
