well, he just isn't a computer person.

people tell him, becareful there is a lot of viruses here and there. he just took the protection aspect a bit to seriously.

i have a better story.

his main drive was 40GB, he got that filled up. So i helped him install a new 320gb secondary drive. told him that to free up space install all games on drive D.

Showed him the browse in installer, so 2 weeks later he calls me: "I installed gameA it worked, but then I installed gameB and gameA doesn't work any more."

I remote desktop to his PC, and guess WHAT!

He installed about 20 games in ROOT of Drive D!!, So the latest game he installed just overwrote files from games that were installed before. IT was a HUGE MESS!

Anyways, you can disable the indexing service from the services applet (Administrative Tools>Services). Locate the Windows Search service and set it to manual startup.
or
Control Panel>Indexing options>Modify> remove check marks from all selected locations.

mate thats what ive been trying to say. when I got to index options its all greyed out and says that it is not running.

how did you stop it then? did you turn off the service ? If the service is off the that message should not come up.

Set the service to disabled.
