How Restart or Resume Windows Indexing Services after Pausing?
Windows indexing services is an automatic process of scanning and storing files to create a database. In simple words it enhances the search option’s speed by creating database of files and folders.
However, running windows indexing services slows down speed of the computer. If in case, you find your computer getting slowed down, then you can choose to temporarily stop the windows indexing services for a while.
As a matter of fact, many people choose to disable windows indexing services temporarily. You can simply ‘pause it by clicking on the paused option in indexing options. However, there you will get no resume button if you so desire to resume it. Therefore, to resume indexing services, you need to either restart the computer or restart windows search service.
The procedure is very simple:
Go to control panel>Administrative tools>services>windows search>restart service.
This is the complete process with which you can easily resume the windows indexing services in your computer. It means whenever you wan to disable it, you can do it. Likewise whenever you want to activate it, you can easily do so with a click of a few buttons..

Best answer I found on the web. THANK YOU
This doesn’t worked for me, but I’ve found another resolution. Restoring Defaults and Rebuilt Index. To do so:
Control Panel > System & Maintenance > Indexing Options. In the Advanced Options, Click on Restore Defaults and Rebuild Index. Click OK.
Garbage. Doesn’t work.
