I mostly use my computer for e-mail, usenet, playing
euchre on Yahoo, watching movies over the internet
and using Google for information.

I've heard reports both ways. Should I or should I not
have indexing turned on? Advantages/disadvantages?

Thank you,

do you spend a lot of time using windows help and searching for files and
text on your hard drive ?
If so, think indexing will save you some time then. But eats some time
initially filling up your spare hard drive space.

Most comments I see recommend that you do not use indexing.
