    Question HELP! - After stopping INDEXING I now have a CONSTANT Processing box What is this?


    After many weeks of Hard Drive light constantly staying for minutes at a time, I turned off Indexing,
    that I seem to remember I did this on another machine years ago.

    What happened after I stopped indexing is now starting to worry me, because after nearly 24 hours
    I have had a box just named "Processing" the Processing box is going through every folder and file.

    I've had Windows since '95' and I'm sure I've never seen this before.

    As I write Processing has reached Users\Users Name\AppData . . . . . .

    I had searched all over to find an answer for the box Processing - but no joy.

    I'm wondering if the Processing Box is switching off the Indexing on each file - although this does seem
    a long process to achieve this.

    Just a thought: I'm not sure if this Processing is dedicated just for Windows 7 related files or not.

    I have tried to run date order on HD C to see if any files have changed since yesterday but nothing,
    because at least that would tell me each file has possibly changed for a reason.

    There is a Cancel button - but unless advised otherwise I'll have to leave it running.

    I'm confused. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance.
