I've searched around for a solution, but it seems that most people want this to happen. I would like Windows Search to start up in Automatic mode on this machine. I set the service to Automatic, start it, and all is well. But...when the system restarts the service is set to Disabled startup mode. I don't know what process, or boot setting, or whatever it may be is causing this to happen. Event Log yields no suspects either.
Can any one here advise on how I might troubleshoot this issue? Any tools, utilities, etc. you would advise? I know about procmon, procexp, and the like, but this seems to be a boot time issue, and I don't know if I can use procmon to trace boot time events.
