The Windows Search service is running as LocalSystem in its own process of SearchIndexer.exe. It doesn't share its process with other services. If Windows Search fails to start, the error is logged. Windows 10 startup proceeds, but a message box is displayed informing you that the WSearch service has failed to start.
Windows Search is unable to start, if the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service is stopped or disabled.
If Windows Search is stopped, the following services cannot start:
1. Select your Windows 10 edition and release, and then click on the Download button below.
2. Save the RestoreWindowsSearchWindows10.bat file to any folder on your hard drive.
3. Right-click the downloaded batch file and select Run as administrator.
4. Restart the computer to save changes.
Note. Make sure that the
SearchIndexer.exe file exists in the
%WinDir%\system32 folder. If this file is missing you can try to restore it from your Windows 10 installation media.
