There are a couple of places it can be...look in the startup folder in Start\Programs. It will have a black icon and there could be two entries.
The other place to see if indexing is going on for FindFast is in Control Panel. If you click the FindFast icon and it opens up, you will see all the drive letters listed that it will index....click each drive listed to highlight it, then click Edit, Delete Indexing from the toolbar.
Now.......If you have no icons, but you have XP, you can go into the Administrative Tools\Services (or Component Services) and look down the list for Indexing. Once you locate it, you can right click that entry, choose Properties, and use the down arrow box to DISABLE it.
Please explain to me again how to stop find fast. I have quite a few MS 2000 programs.
