It seems that your data file for your search index was corrupted.

Please perform the following steps to check the result.
1.Open Task Manager by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc
2.On Processes Tab,click “Microsoft Windows Search Indexer”,then right-click “End Task”
3.Go to the directory C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Search 4.Delete the folder “Data”.You will directly see a new folder named “Data”
Note that the seach indexer in the task manager will relaunch very quickly therefore you will need to delete the data folder within 2 seconds of ending the task for the search indexer.
