Hi all,

Just a quick question. How do I disable/remove Windows Desktop Search?

I'm having a concerted effort to speed up my machine....I think this one is holding a fair bit of resources....without doing anything!

WDS does not appear in my Add/remove programs or CCleaner.

Thanks in advance.
(Windows XP Pro Sp2 2.8 Ghz 2o48mb)

Thanks for your help.
