    Windows Search Indexer stopped working

    I am receiving an error message pretty regularly that says Windows Search
    Indexer has stopped working and was closed. It started after I was asked if
    I wanted to archive or something - my e-mails in Windows Mail. At that time
    all my emails disappeared - then were retreived in different folders. Since
    then whenever I open the computer or close Windows mail I received the error
    message. It's just very annoying and I would like to fix this. Can anyone
    help me out?

    Hi Heidi,
