Removing Windows Desktop Search

by bill - 2009-01-03 ( education / tech / computers / software )

Well, I thought I liked this version 4 better than version 3. I hated version 3. But, it turns out, version 4 is no better. It starts and finds things quicker (for me, anyway), but it ruins the computer's performance the rest of the time!

  • Remove it from your Startup group (Start, All Programs, Startup)
  • Then run this from a Command prompt:
    • regsvr32 /u "%programfiles%Windows Desktop SearchwdsShell.dll"
