Can I remove Windows Search 4.0 from WHS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am having problems where my WHS is locking up showing 100% CPU usage which I have posted elsewher at this forum:

    A quick search on the internet suggests that Windows Search is the problem.

    I don't search for files on my WHS and I don't think I have any use for it.  When I tried removing it using the Add or Remove Programs function, I got a warning providing a huge list of programs that depend on it.  If I remove it will I destroy my WHS server?

    Is it likely that Windows Search 4.0 is causing the problem?  It appears to go off when I am trying to use MySQL which is installed on my WHS.
