» Searchindexer.exe frequenly grabs 90-100% of the CPU. It stays tied up for several minutes. Of course, everything else becomes "hung". I have been having this problem since I switched to Windows 7. Is there anyway to revert to the search used in XP?
Malware programs(Virus:ALisp/Bursted.CQ) upon entering a system unleash innumerable processes that may consume huge amounts of CPU resources and slow down your computer. Also, malware may infect your otherwise good files and cause them to report high CPU usage. Run a malware scan on your computer to ensure your PC is not infected. If threats are reported in the scan, immediately delete them to resolve high CPU usage issues.
The effect of removing a virus can be as dramatic as the aftermath of a disaster. After eradicating a virus or other form of virus infection, Windows is left in a somewhat broken state.
The safest approach, by far, is to reinstall Windows. But given how painful that is, the alternatives that follow it are often more practical. This time, I would like to recommend DLL Suite to you. DLL Suite has one tool called "Fix EXE Virus", specially targeted to fix virus infection problem and thus fix slow PC performance.
Download DLL Suite, install and run > Click Dashboard menu and > Click Scan DLL Errors button > Click Fix DLL Errors button after the scan. And all the problems are fixed as you wish!

Have you checked the index options as to what programs / files are being indexed?
Finally tried rebuilding the index?
- LEON MARLOW replied on January 24, 2013: » The Win7 Ultimate version that I have is 7.0.7600.16385 File Version and 7.00.7600.16385 Product Version.
I have checked the index options and horror of horrors, I had to add large folder to it and couldn't find anything to remove.
I will try rebuilding the index.
- CHRISTY HARRISON replied on January 25, 2013: » the trace says something different. The CarboniteService.exe and later the Microsoft .NET Framework NGEN (clr_optimization) service are causing the high CPU usage. The Microsoft .NET Framework NGEN optimizes .net files after installing .net updates or other .net applications to make .net applications faster.
The search indexer is ok.
- LEON MARLOW replied on January 25, 2013: » I rebuilt the index and things seem a bit better. Still hanging but longer breaks inbetween incidents. I posted a SkyDrive link. I put some data files there. If you want to look at them please go ahead. The 3 zipped files were created with a program called xperf. See Andre's notes for more information.
