Broken Search on Windows 10

Forum tags: 

I ran a full cleaning of my windows 10 computer except for deep scan, and when I tried to use the search function nothing from my own system comes up. Only internet searches and obscure files appear, and it seems to have deleted the search's ability to find my apps, and settings. Has anybody else had this problem or know how to fix it? also i am running insider fast ring update 18317, if that matters. Please this is really frustrating so if anybody has come across this before please help me out!

MS Search Index - clean or keep?


It is a major pain in Windows to have to rebuild a search index for file Explorer or Outlook because it takes hours after using Bleachbit. Also it is very time-saving in daily work. So the temptation is not to clean it out.

On the other hand, for snoopers it is presumably one of the most powerful sources of information on my PC about me.

Has anyone found a way to retain the power of the MS Search Index without leaving it open to assorted Peeping Toms, Stasi, NSA and other pond life?

Search Index for MS Outlook and MS file Explorer - which cleaner label?



This is surely a dumb question but I cannot work it out: which of the Bleachbit cleaners is the one that removes the MS search index for Outlook and for file Explorer?

Thanks for your help.

It would be a useful option since sometimes you need to find a certain one but you don't remember which of the categories it's in so you have to look through all the entries that could count to 100+
