Hello and welcome to the forum. What version of Windows are you using? I have Windows 8 and I might have some different names in my directory, but it seems you have a problem with search indexing. By default the index contains references to your browser history. Here's how I fixed it:

 

1.) Go to Control Panel>All Control Panel Items>Indexing Options; a new panel opens, Indexing Options; it contains three items; Internet Explorer History, Start Menu, and Users

 

2.) Click Modify; a new panel opens, Indexing Locations

 

3.) Uncheck the box for "Internet Explorer History"; then click OK; this panel closes

 

4.) The first panel, Indexing Options, should now only have two items: Start Menu and Users

 

5.) Click Advanced, and on the new panel that appears, click Rebuild; this will create a new search index without the Internet Explorer History

 

Be patient; at first it seems like nothing is happening, but soon you'll see a counter slowly increasing as the new index is being created. When it's done you'll see the message "Indexing Complete".

 

I started with over 6,800 items in my search index; now I have 963. Post back if you need don't understand these instructions or have a problem.

Thank you for your suggestion. I am running Windows 7 and I cannot find the option to locate the Indexing Options through the Control Panel. Please could someone advise the procedure using Windows 7?
