    HELP!! I pretty much use Spotlight 24/7 on my Mac to launch apps, documents, etc.. Need to launch outlook, rather then hitting it in the tray I just click on spotlight and type in out and click on it.

    Now.. when I type something in Spotlight like "out" for outlook, my results come up, but about 1/2 second later they disappear! So now, I can't use Spotlight any more. My system is completely up to date on the current patches and system updates, OSX 10.12.6.

    Note: I did try removing my macintosh HD and re-adding it to Spotlight. That fixed the problem for 1 day and then it came back. Any other ideas how to keep that sucker from closing every time I try to use it?
