Re: Indexing - not indexing!
Thanks for the reply! Just checked permissions. I am the only user on this
machine but my logon name doesn't appear in there. I didn't expect it would
though. Everything in the permissions excepting for "Authenticated users"
has full control. I have set that to have it now, as well but don't expect
it to make any difference. Have you any other ideas?
