How vital is Windows Search Indexer to Vista?

Not all there...

Meh... switching to Vista 64-bit system has been such a PITA! In addition to the email and internet issues, now my QuarkXpress program doesn't like to access printers (I can't even get as far as the print dialog box). So the one solution I've found to make the printers work in Quark 8 is to turn off the Windows Search Indexer. Problem solved... I think. But am I going to have other problems because of this? I can't find any documentation indicating just how important this utility really is.

I only used windows search on a couple of occasions, but leave it indexed for the simple fact that you never know when you will need it ..

You should not have any problems at all. Lots of people diable it anyhow. Weird about your printer problem. I have Indexing disabled on my x64 and never have any issues arise from that.

I can't live without it tbh :)

Helps me find all my files quickly and I haven't noticed a performance hit.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
