This is the latest released vbersion. It should appear in the Add/Remove Programs as "Windows Desktop Search".
I honestly can't see how it could have been removed from there...
You can also try this:
Go to the Startup tab
Find Windows Desktop Search in the Startup Items list and uncheck it
Ok, Close, Save, etc
This will prevent the service to start automatically.
