There is nothing bad with Everything after the latest Windows updates.
You don't say anything about your environment, how should the Author help ?
What exact version of Windows and Everything do you have ?

If Everything is taking a long time to update after a Windows update, it might be faster to rebuild your Everything database:
  • Open the Task Manager with Ctrl + Shift + ESC
  • Click the Processes tab (or details tab).
  • Select Everything.exe and click End task.
  • Click End task.
  • Delete your %LOCALAPPDATA%\Everything\Everything.db
  • Restart Everything.
This slowness usually occurs after many changes have been made to your file systems while Everything was not running.

Please make sure you are using the latest version of Everything for the best updating performance.
