Welcome to the Apple Discussions
This could be caused by a corrupt Preferences file.
Go to Home / Library / Preferences
trash the com.apple.spotlight.plist file
and the com.apple.systemuiserver.plist file.
The OS will regenerate these files automatically, but you preferences will be reset to factory defaults.
Thanks for your help, but it doesn't seem to solve the problem. I deleted the file and rebooted, but no change. I also repaired my file permissions to no avail. It appears that Spotlight is stuck on scouring my disk in search of something. Perhaps it has some sort of bad input that doesn't get deleted when the system restarts?
