    Getting “search engine disabled” message while opening MS Outlook on Windows XP

    Whenever I try to launch MS Outlook on my PC running on Windows XP, I receive the error message “Windows search engine currently disabled. Outlook will not be able to provide fast search results using the new instant search functionality unless the service is running”. I am damn sure that I haven’t disabled the search engine. Is there any way to avoid this error message?

    Disable the Windows search service first and enable it again. The first step required is to click the ‘Start’ button and hit ‘Run’ option from start menu. Type services.msc into the field appears on the screen afterwards and choose the ‘services’ option. Then, right click on the ‘Windows Search Service’ and wait until a menu pop up on the screen. Click on ‘Stop’ from that option for disabling the service. You can then re-enable it by selecting the ‘Start’ after right clicking on ‘Windows Search Service’ option. If the issue still persists, then download Windows search and install it.

    :: You need to enabled the window service on your XP setup, that why this error has come.


    :: So first of all close all windows screen then go to the window start and open it.


    :: Now select the "run command" and then type the “services. MSc “option and open it.


    :: Once it opens, open the service and move to the windows search service.


    :: Under it, you have to enable the service
