Please explain to me again how to stop find fast. I have quite a few MS 2000 programs.

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.

If you find any entries in the Startup folder, right click each one and choose Delete.

Programs, start-up is empty. Control Panel, Findfast icon - When I opened this up there was just a blank screen. At the top it said index and help. When I clicked index it had a list of several things and only one had a check mark: Run when I log on.

then just uncheck the RUN ON LOG ON....and that should stop it from running anything in the background.

You don't say if you have XP...if you do, you might also look in Administrative Tools in Control Panel, then under the Component Services or Services to see if it's listed anywhere there. If so, right click that entry, choose Properties, and choose Disable from the drop down arrow list.

Sorry. I am running Windows Me and I have done what you said. Maybe that will help a bit. Thanks

REVIEW

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
