Windows Desktop Search

I got a first look at Windows Desktop Search today (bundled with MSN Search Toolbar?) I was told that it was new on the system and had not been used. The systems owner didn’t know when it was installed and thought it must have been installed when he did a windows update. It looks like the MSN search toolbar adds tabbed browsing to internet explorer. I’m a bit suspicious of ANY software that the system owner is unsure of how it got to be installed on the system.


In my opinion, Windows update is for security fixes, not feature additions and am a bit curious as to how it did get on the system. Hopefully it was an MSN toolbar download and he just didn’t notice that Windows Desktop search was bundled. It’s a pretty good point to make though. Be careful when installing software to read details.

I’ve known many software packages to bring along as many as a half dozen “bundled” applications that wind up bringing frustrations.
