I love Windows Desktop Search. (The others from Google et al are probably just as good). It makes it so much easier to find files. My colleagues are amazed that I can find old emails so quickly.
But why is it that on both the machines I’ve installed it on, the indexing process hangs about like a bad smell, interrupting what used to be a smooth shutdown? Not every time mind you, but consistently enough to be very irritating. Surely it’s not that hard to gracefully have your process detect that the operating system is shutting down, and quietly go with the flow?
Maybe I should switch to that Google one. I wonder if it talks to Exchange?
