Windows Index ?

Q: Windows Index ?

At the right hand side of my task-bar there is a small 'magnifing glass' icon that says 'Indexing Complete' most times. I would like to get rid of this but only if it's safe to do so. I've looked in 'Add & Remove Programmes' and I can see 'Windows Search 4.0'. Is this the programme I'm looking for ? It tells me that certain things were installed after the installation of this programme and that certain things may not work properly if I remove it. So can I remove this and if not, what does this programme do that's beneficial ?
Anyone help ?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If you dont have an SSD the 7.8 was wrong. Any normal HD scores in the 5-6 range. after all 7100 was a release candidate.

Hi all. I hope I'm not duplicating a post here. I did a search and came up empty. My question is this: Has microsoft done away with the index.dat file associated with internet explorer? I've read that it is no longer included. Can someone confirm or deny? I know that IE8 has an inprivate browsing feature which is a great privacy tool. But if your browsing activity is still recorded elsewhere, it sort of defeats the purpose.

Hiyas
After upgrading, I ram WEI. Processor os 5.9, Graphics 5.9, gaming graphics 5.9, hard disk 5.8 (raid sys), memory 5.0
I am using 5-5-5-15 DDR2 mem, 2x1Gb sticks in slots 2 and4. Mobo is a BFG 680i SLI.
Previously when I ran th esame test on the old rig, I was getting 5.9 easily for mem. So, what the hell is going on? It seems a very low rating for what it is. I am not sure if it is a windows thing, or a hardware thing- it is possible a more recent BIOS would make a difference, but I have been unable to locate ANY BIOS updates- BFG pages lead to dead links, as do pretty much every other lead.
Any ideas anyone?
Cheers

I have just recently helped a friend upgrade his computer to be Windows Vista capable.

One of the upgrades was a nVidia 9600GT graphics card.

Except now the problem is this, even with the newest nVidia drivers installed, the WEI will not score more than 1.0 for Graphics.

The odd thing is it shows the correct driver is installed, but the test is being run using "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter", as show below:


This happens even after a total clean re-install of Windows Vista Home Basic.

A:Windows Experience Index

I think that a repair install (upgrade) would be your best bet. In lieu of that approach, just reinstall, again. This should not be a problem, since you have just reinstalled.

My best advice, however, after you are up and running, have programs installed and activate, make a system image and put it in a safe place. In that way you will never have to come here again, with a similar problem.

it went down from 5.8 to 5.6 and i need to know why

A:windows experience index went down

Hello xbabeoo,

This depends on which hardware subscore dropped.

Most likely, it's due to an updated driver for that item (ex: graphics). Drivers can cause the WEI score for that item to go up and down a tiny bit since the drivers can affect their performance.

Hope this helps some,

A:Windows experience index

Quote:
The Windows Experience Index measures the capability of your computer's hardware and software configuration and expresses this measurement as a number called a base score. A higher base score generally means that your computer will perform better and faster than a computer with a lower base score, especially when performing more advanced and resource-intensive tasks.

Each hardware component receives an individual subscore. Your computer's base score is determined by the lowest subscore. For example, if the lowest subscore of an individual hardware component is 2.6, then the base score is 2.6. The base score is not an average of the combined subscores.

Hey,

I've been wondering whether or not if I should re-enable the Index service in Windows. I usually always disable it since I do know it can kill some system resource and blast the processor to the point where you can't do anything for a couple minutes or so.

But then now since I have 500 gigs of data and I'm probably expecting to upgrade to 4 TB, is it worth it to have the indexing service running? I've had some issues where I'm trying to open up an archive file and it takes about a minute or two to even open up the archive file. During that time, there's a lot of hard drive activity occurring.

I do actually want to know if the index service only indexes files so when you actually do a search in Windows Explorer, it only finds those files you searched for. Or does it also index files on the hard drive so Windows can access them faster?

Thanks.

Hmm, don't know about that one. Maybe if I had a crappy processor.
I would always just keep indexing on, unless I'm using a system that is installed on a SSD, then I disable it.

RELEVANCY SCORE 39.6

I ran successfully the Windows Experience Index (WEI) soon after installing Win 7 64 bit on a new computer. I tried running it again after making some hardware performance changes. It started to run, but gave a warning that I was on battery power and stopped? This is a desktop machine. If I go to the Power savings section I see what appears to be settings for a laptop?? It seems that my computer is seen as a laptop. How can I change that? Now I don't even have the option of running the program. I ran SFC and all is well, I deleted all the files in C:\windows\performance\winsat\datastore and that didn't fix it.
It just seems that my desktop is seen as a laptop?? Any way to change that, and where??
Thanks for any help.

I have a message on my machine about file://C:\WINDOWS\privacy_danger\index.htm was not found. A message appeared stating that I had to download some software to delete the virus, which unfortunatley I did. The background changed to red. Right-clicking will not allow me to change the desktop to anything else and the privacy_danger message keeps appearing. I have run trend micro hijack this and the diagnosis is attached. Any help you can give me regarding what to do next would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Hello
At the conclusion of Windows Experience it produces A report and you can print it but there is no option for saving it
What I would like to do is have is a short cut to access the report or a way of saving it
After running the index the logs are stored at Windows\performance\winsat\data store\
but there is no report there
The same sort of thing applies to the administrative logs in Event Viewer this log is a summary of the critical and error reports generated by the other logs which are stored at windows\system32\winevt\logs but again no reportis there it would also be nice to have a shortcut for administrative log
can anyone help

You can't save it as a file anywhere, but you can access it again from the System screen in the Control Panel, then click on Windows Experience Index, then 'View and print detailed...' under your score.

Let's see what vista is giving your system:



The Windows Experience Index measures the capability of your computer's hardware and software configuration and expresses this measurement as a number called a base score. A higher base score generally means that your computer will perform better and faster than a computer with a lower base score, especially when performing more advanced and resource-intensive tasks.Click to expand...

Open Performance Information and Tools by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Performance Information and Tools.
Mine:

Click to Maximize

As you can see, I am running the Japanese version of Vista. The categories are (from top to bottom)

Processor
Ram
Graphics (desktop)
Graphics (gaming)
Primary Hard disk

It gives you an individual score for each category, then your main score is whatever was the lowest of all your categories. My lowest was my CPU score, so my main score equals my CPU score.

My system:
Core 2 Duo 6600
Evga 680i
2Gb Corsair XMS2
7950GT 512mb graphics

Also please note what version of vista you are running, as they have made major changes since the beta versions. Mine is on RC1.

Note: the purpose of this thread is not to compare our systems, but an evaluation of this new "index" system itself. Is it a good system or not.

Microsoft seems to want to simplify things by giving you an easy number. Then when you go to buy software, it wi... Read more

AMD Opteron 165 @ 2.8 GHz
Abit AV8
2 GB Corsair Value Select

Running Vista Ultimate RTM.

I don't know if Nvidia's drivers would get a better score, I'm using Microsoft's WDDM drivers because Nvidia's wouldn't install.
