Cannot Modify Indexed Locations for Windows Indexing Options in Vista

I am having problems with Windows Search Indexing using excessive
amounts of CPU and slowing down my system and want to decrease the
number of locations and/or file extensions being indexed to see if this
helps the problem. However, when I try to modify the indexed locations
(Control Panel | Indexing Options | Modify), the Change Selected
Locations pane is empty (i.e., there are no check boxes to enable or
disable). If I click the Show All Locations button, my hard drive chugs
away for about 15 seconds and then both the Indexed Locations and
Indexing Options windows close and prevent me from making any changes.

Whenever this failure happens I simultaneously generate a COM Surrogate
error that can be viewed in Control Panel | Problem Reports and
Solutions with the following details:


Problem signature
Problem Event Name: APPCRASH
Application Name: DllHost.exe
Application Version: 6.0.6000.16386
Application Timestamp: 4549b14e
Fault Module Name: ShellvRTF.dll
Fault Module Version: 1.1.0.8
Fault Module Timestamp: 46d83e7c
Exception Code: c0000005
Exception Offset: 000057ab
OS Version: 6.0.6002.2.2.0.768.3
Locale ID: 4105
Additional Information 1: 65ce
Additional Information 2: f3639ff676d879619c14ca889d32cd4c
Additional Information 3: 9792
Additional Information 4: 137aaa9fce82e760bb8dec1aeefbbef9


Iíve tried restoring the indexing defaults and rebuilding the entire
index (Control Panel | Indexing Options | Advanced | Index Settings tab
| Restore Defaults) but I still canít modify the indexed locations.

I've checked my user account (Control Panel | User Accounts) and
confirmed that my account type is Administrator, but I have a sneaking
suspicion that the UAC does not always recognize that my account has
Administrator rights.
