New+Free+Desktop Search+Google

Availabel free from Google Web site. It is able to search your own computer for:
1) Web pages you have used
2) Email you have sent or received in Outloog of OExpress.
3) IM chats using AIM
4) Files in MW Word, Excel , PowerPoint as well as plain text.

No doubt the search capabilities will be extended in due course.

I have used it, but so far have not found anything I have typed in yet. Maybe it is still registering? Anyone else have had more positive result than I have had?

It's not very good. Still needs a lot of work. Go to this thread and find out about a much better program that does the same plus a whole lot more click here

JayDay, I am sorry for Google, but I have to agree with you 100%. I was completely left feeling like a flat tyre. I will try Coppernic.

I've downloaded Copernic and Removed Google Desktop Search. However have not tested it out yet. Waiting for a rainy day, I suppose.

Just thought I would mention that when you click on "Post Response" Just Once, you have to wait for quite awhile, feels like ages, before it is transmitted. I often think that it is not working and I ckick, click. Each time I click, a new duplicate message is registered. So now I just click Post Response Once and wait and twiddle my thumbs.

May I second your remarks about the slow transmission time...just posted another response and thought it had not worked and clicked took an age.
