View Thread: Uninstall windows desktop search!! howto
  • User profile image

    Manip, I don't want to get rid of the MSN search toolbar.

    I use it to use MSN search which rocks.

    I want to uninstall windows desktop search which sucks - I have a brand new dell, all I have running is my dev tools.  It hangs my computer on shutdown, and tanks my computer constantly - it indexes folders it shouldn't be.

    Yahoo is clearly a better, more performant product.

    So how do I get rid of the windows desktop search without giving up the toolbar I need for MSN searches (MSN is my favorite internet search app, Windows desktop is my least favorite desktop search by a longshot)
