Desktop search software alternative

Question

kiddingguy    55

I currently have Copernic Desktop Search installed, but this software is running and indexing constantly (for no reason), has a high CPU usage (30-50%) and therefore is running my computer very hot and my fans are blowing like crazy.

 

Is there a (better) alternative for this software, which indexes my PDF-files (also incl. OCR), Outlook-files (maybe even Thunderbird), Office documents, like Word, Excel, Powerpoint and the regular indexing of other files on multiple disks/partitions.

 

It's OK to have a paid version, but a good ad-free freeware alternative is also fine.
