Search errors caused by CCleaner


K

Krypto

I recently noticed that after every restart, windows search is
rebuilding the search index. Looking in the event viewer, it would
appear that I have an error issue with ESENT attempting to open a log
file which does not exist. I get several 'Search' errors as well.

I would like to inform persons viewing this post, that it seems I was
able to find the cause of this issue. Being a long-time user of
Piriform CCleaner, it appears one of the recent updates changed or
added an item labled "MS Search" under 'Applications' > 'Windows'.
Upon unchecking this option in the settings of CCleaner, I am no
longer experiencing the symptoms posted above.

I have been using CCleaner for years without experiencing this
problem, but after a recent update the Event Viewer showed about a
dozen errors after each boot. If this is an old problem then it is
strange that it just now started giving me these errors. No other
version of CCleaner gave me errors until now.

Anyways I just put that out there for anyone else who might be
experiencing the same problem.

Yes, and it was a good, friendly thing to do. I thank you like the

Is this on the Pro version? I just updated my free one to v4.02.4115 and
don't see "MS Search" anywhere. Maybe Piriform had enough complaints and
removed that setting :)

Look again. It is there under Applications/Windows second last from bottom.

You have the 64-bit version; SC Tom the 32-bit. But I don't think that's
the reason. It's more likely to be that you have MS Search switched on,
but he doesn't.

All the best, Ed
I was thinking the same thing. Mine does not have it either.
I dumped windows 7 search on the third day of using the o/s.

I have the latest version of the paid-for Pro version and MS Search is
not listed amongst the applications as far as I can see.

Sorry, I need new glasses. Yes, it's there under Windows.

I think you and Ed hit the nail right on the head; I haven't used/enabled MS
Search in forever (it seems) :)
