Windows Desktop Search

Who's using it? Any speed issues?

Re: Windows Desktop Search

I disable the desktop search feature. It's nice to have if one enjoys the
hard disk thrashing about all to find those documents that are located in
iTunes anyway.

Then add the Anti-virus and anti-spyware that interrogates every search
query. It makes older computers real slow and makes newer computers feel
like older computers.

Like drugs, just say no.

If you send a email to sewermonger@gmail.com I can send a ISO image that you can burn off and use it to get rid of that particular "feature" that "enhances DE-performance" that is guar own teed to make a 3ghz 4 gig mem machince appear like a XT wanna be.

Re: Windows Desktop Search

In use it on my own PC but not on user PCs. I find it slows the PC down
quite a bit.

I have 60 PCs with that pos installed. Some of these PCs need 15
minutes just to boot up. The natives are very restless 😞

Just for grins I googled 'Windows Desktop Search'.... many negative
reports but have not found a single positive report.

The thing that kills me, I did NOT elect to have WDS installed in the
first place. Nope, it was a M$ consultant that served some koolaid to
the powers that be 😞
