If you’ve noticed that your disk has a tendency to start thrashing at seemingly random intervals, and you have Microsoft Office installed on your PC, it’s likely that the culprit is a piece of software called the Find Fast Indexer.
This tutorial will take you through the steps involved in determining whether or not this is the case, and, if so, how to remove the software.
Installed on your computer when you install Microsoft Office, the Find Fast Indexer builds an index to speed up finding documents in Microsoft Office programs.
By default, Find Fast will run on start-up and thereafter periodically. The thing is that it uses a lot of system resources when it does run, which can be a nuisance if it happens to run at particularly inconvenient times.
