Indexer keeps crashing on Vista - Event 7031 on SearchIndexer.exe

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by John Richardson, Feb 10, 2007.

  1. The indexer on Vista is repeatedly crashing - in fact, it won't start up at
    all. As a first shot, I've logged all the information I can find in the hope
    it gets indexed. So far, the only report I can find of similar problems is
    in Chinese and from a beta build of Vista. More later

    "Microsoft Windows Search Indexer has stopped working"
    Event ID: 7031
    OS: Vista Ultimate
    Frequency: Repeatedly

  2. My Search Indexer crashed after I had a crash with an audio. I had a bad
    sound card driver. I ended up doing a re-install. You can turn it off in
    Services so it won't keep popping up. I found some others having this
    problem. Just do a search on Search Indexer and there are a couple of other
    reports. No fixes that I can find.

    I've had the same problem. It started about 2 days ago and it constantly
    crashes. Unfortunately I don't have any of the logs or info about the
    problem with me.
    I know it is preventing me from opening Outlook 2007 (if I start in safe
    mode it's ok, normal mode locks). Ever since the crashing started I also
    cannot copy files across my network, it will again lock if I attempt it. I
    hope this is something fixable...

  4. You can disable Windows Search in the Services console. That will allow you
    to run any programs. It just won't keep a updated list of the files on your
    comoputer so when you do a file search it may be slower. I could not find a
    fix other than what I just described so I ended up formatting C: and
    re-installing. I couldn't deal with my 2 day old vista installation being
    broke. I didn't put my audio driver back on and I have run perfectly for a
    week now.
