    PC freezes frequently upon Search


    Hello guys ,

    After long search got here.I moved from Windows 7 32bit to Windows 8.1 Enterprise 64bit installation was clean got my OS validated PC was working fine for 1 day and then I got this issue which freezes my PC for longtime repeatedly.All I have installed in it was Steam DOTA 2 game and some media softwares like VLC,Chrome,Firefox nothing more .I checked upon my event viewer found this Index Search error frequently on startup and also ESNET issue .

    I tried to update my gigabyte mother board drivers but didn't get new one .So moved on to use this Intel Online Scanner then I get this BSOD from System requirements Labs had to leave that thing .

    Can anyone tell me how do I move forward ?

    All the other option I have is to reformat my PC and degrade from 8.1 Enterprise to 8.1,8.1 Pro or Win 7 Ultimate 64bit mostly .

    From MS forums.

    Method 1:

    If you're having problems locating specific files, folders, or other items on your computer, try using the Search and Indexing troubleshooter to fix the problem.
    Follow these steps:
    a. Press “windows key + W” on your keyboard.
    b. Type “Troubleshooting” without quotes in the search box and hit enter.
    c. Select “View all” from the left panel.
    d. Select “Search and Indexing” and follow the on-screen instructions.

    Method 2:

    Let’s rebuild the index.

    a. Open Indexing Options by pressing Windows key + X, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type indexing options, and then click Indexing Options.
    b. Click Advanced.
    c. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    d. In the Advanced Options dialog box, click the Index Settings tab, and then click Rebuild. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    Hope this helps and do let us know if you need any assistance
