hi,
i am looking for a desktop search. now the one that has come up the most is
'Windows Desktop Search'

Now the thing is.
Is it any good and has anyone else got it. And if you have can you give your opinion on it to me.

Thanks
Ben.

Hi, well, I guess it does what it says on the time - but, I disabled mine because it just seems to slow things down generally, and if I want to find anything I already have a good idea where to look.

Cheers.

that was meant to be "what it does on the tin" Ooops, sorry.

Ooops again - I must be tired, or just getting old ...... 'what it says on the tin'

I think that Technotiger might be right that it slows the system down a bit. However, I have tried Windows Desktop Search, Google Desktop Search and the Yahoo version, and it was certainly Windows Desktop Search which seemed to perform the best.
