Google: this is how to disable Vista Desktop Search Index

12 Jun

It is totally untrue the only way to turn off Local Desktop search is by disabling the Windows Search Service. Here are the steps:-

  1. Start > Control Panel > Indexing Options
  2. Modify > Show All Locations
  3. Now Uncheck all the locations currently check
  4. Uncheck the Offline files and Outlook if selected.

Google claim that Vista does not allow third party Desktop search applications to install / run is misleading.
