    SearchFilterHost near constantly running at 35% CPU.

    The resulting heat means my laptop sounds like it is trying to take off. I have tried removing .xml files from indexing as has been suggested on my multiple searches. Didn't help at all. Somehow turning off the process if possible is also not a solution in my opinion.

    Looking in Event Viewer, I noticed a great many of the following 'Warnings' from the 'Search' source "The protocol host process 8472 did not respond and is being forcibly terminated {filter host process 10000}." The numbers involved change frequently.

    Any ideas as to how I can fix this? It's driving me mad. I have attached a screenshot from the process tree area of Process Monitor, it is perhaps relevant.

I ran the software once - and pressed the button that is supposed to purge all the detected "Adware.Tracking cookie" and stuff like that, and so it should be all gone, but it runs everytime I reboot the computer and it is again showing 'how many items found' and increasing, so I'm not sure if it...

HDD constantly trashing
Hi, I've recently installed Windows 8 on an Asus X201E. There is an audiable constant disk trashing, although the HDD LED doesn't blink & the Performance monitor in the task manager also doesn't indicate any excessive disk access (literally 0% when nothing is going on). What could cause this?...
