I've noticed several errors in Windows Application Log (Event ID 36) with "Search cannot complete the indexing of your Outlook data. Indexing cannot continue for C:\Users\... (error=0x81404005). If this error continues, contact Microsoft Support."
This started some time in June, I suppose. It's on Windows 7. Is it another bad update?

Yeah, shoulda started about the same time as the bad outlook update - but AFAIK, it was a bad windows update that is the problem. It's supposed to be fixed in an update being released tomorrow.
I am having search problems for all but one of my email accounts but i don't have the update that is supposedly causing the problems. I have a similar # but it ends in 19 instead of 15.

Did the June 27 windows update fix the search problems? (You might need to rebuild the index.)

I haven't updated anything yet, as I usually skip the "preview updates" (if you're referring to KB4022168) - I suppose the "real thing" will be released next week?
The only two other updates I can see at this time (listed on Important) are Word 2013 and Skype for Business 2015.

I think they are slowly rolling it out to users, so if not next week, then 'soon'.

Just a quick follow-up -- I've installed all updates a day or two ago, and ever since, the error entries haven't appeared. Also, I tried a few searches and it seems the items have been indexed. I didn't need to rebuild the index, though.
