    Single Event Viewer error


    I have upgraded to Windows 8.1 and my system runs well. I have just ONE single error in the event viewer that pops up occasionally and I cannot find a solution. There are many people on 8.1 receiving this same error so if someone could share a light on it and provide a fix I would be most grateful

    Event id 3036
    Gatherer

    Crawl could not be completed on content source <winrt://{S-1-5-21-275644573-715913347-3722770935-1001}/

    Context: Application, SystemIndex Catalog

    Details:
    The parameter is incorrect. (HRESULT : 0x80070057) (0x80070057)


    Rebuilding the search index doesn't fix it. Can it be removed from search if it's a search problem?

    Event id 3036 is not an error, it's a warning. Warnings occur all the time, and are often due to normal circumstances that simply can't be controlled.

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    Hey, you only have ONE error or warning? I have 59,000 Bonjour warnings/errors in my event list, and that's just from the last month, I have to keep deleting my system logs.

    Every day you'll have at least a few errors or warnings, if your system still boots and runs I would not worry.

    If that one error is all you got, consider yourself lucky!

    Lol I got even luckier, I managed to get rid of the error. It was just a simple Regedit fix to remove it from the index. I have a grand total of ZERO errors in the Event Viewer on every boot. I don't know how because Windows 8.1 is still not a patch on Windows 7.

    Lol - Fnally, I don't have any Event Warnings, Errors or Critical Items on my desktop after installing 8.1 - but I have 3 on my laptop I can't seem to get rid of......drives me nuts! Guess we're too particular, Sayjimwoo! We would probably be more sane if we ignored them like XweAponX.

    LOL yeah, drove me crazy. I am too OCD on my rig. Not always a good thing though. By the way, what are the errors?

    Right now I have 3 - this is on my Sony Vaio T13124CXS Touchscreen Laptop.

    The 1st pertains to touchscreen, I think, it's: Event 264 A multitouch device reported inconsistent contact information...however touchscreen and everything else work ok.

    The 2nd is Event 126 (8) pertains to Vaio Message Center crash - again, Message Center works ok.

    The 3rd is Event 1002 (101) wwahost.exe stopped interacting - this refers in the description to YahooInc.Yahoo Mail. Not sure about this - I only have desktop Yahoo Mail, nothing in Metro.

    None of them seem to be affecting operation of 8.1, so I probably should be like XweAponX and ignore them. Guess I'm too involved with the details.


    On my desktop. I'm clean except once in a while after boot, I get Event 10010 DCOM error. This is intermittent tho.

    This exact issue is slowing down my system drastically- with SearchIndexer.exe hanging and dragging my CPU down.
    Please, what is the Regedit fix??
    Help please!

    Thanks, Verstiburger

    If it is the exact same error as I posted at the top of the thread then this fixed it for me.
    Open up a command prompt and paste this line into it -

    "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search\DefaultExcludedPaths" /v "winrt://{S-1-5-21-275644573-715913347-3722770935-1001}/" /t REG_SZ /d "winrt://{S-1-5-21-275644573-715913347-3722770935-1001}/" /f

    Then press enter and all should be well.
    It just adds a line to the registry that excludes it from the search path and you no longer get the error.
    If you ever need to remove it, just locate the line in the registry and delete it

    It worked for me. Strange thing though, I recently reinstalled Windows 8.1 again cos I bought a new SSD and the error never came back after my format, but hey if it does I will just add this registry line in again.

    Thanks for the quick reply,
    However simply copying the command gives 'cannot find the specified path' error.
    I created the rest of the path via regedit. In the DefaultExcludedPaths key, what value type & Value Data do I need?
    Sorry, I can't exactly follow your command.

    Thanks, Verstiburger.
