Gentlemen, PC World Magazine (April) describes a free search tool developed by MSN which is supposed to be as fast as the new Google search tool. It's supposedly for searching files and folders, My Documents, e-mail files, Windows Explorer, etc..

I already have the new Desktop Sidebar which I use daily to load the History files from My Documents, and am happy with the results. It makes me wonder if I need another Deskbar on my taskbar.

It sounds complicated to set up but maybe someone out there is already using it and might offer their opinion. You will find this option at "find.pcworld.com/46302.

Thanks for any feedback.

Hopeful

There has been a lot of discussion about possible unresolved security issues remaining in the second release of the product, which now includes a larger number of file types. If you have a lot of personal documents, files, etc. stored on your hard drive, this application will allow you to search all of these by an entry, which could be a major benefit to the average user.
