Your Windows Index is likely stuck, corrupted, broken, or trying to search a non-existent folder.

 

Solution:

Correct or Rebuild the Windows Search Index

 

Path to the Index

Navigate to Control Panel > icon view > Index

 

Help - Start here:

Fix problems in Windows Search

 

If you would like to do so, the subject is well covered in many articles on the 'net.

Search for "Windows index not working" or "windows search not working" (or similar).

 

The main steps are about the she same - choose an article that matches your situation and skill level.
