Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
With these two programs, you will lose nothing in Internet or on your PC. MSN Search Toolbar could be a nice addition to Internet Explorer, yet it is wholly focused on Microsoft search services. You can t add other search engines. The built-in pop-up blocker handled well standard ads yet let in DHTML (fly-in) pop-ups. However, the second component does make the suite worth downloading. With Windows Desktop Search, finding a document by its contents takes seconds. The program uses the familiar Explorer interface. We found very convenient the ability to preview the contents of various documents. The program gives you full control over indexing. You can select folders and file types to index or skip. Not to slow down your computer, the program can automatically pause indexing when you work on your PC. Windows Desktop Search doesn t hog much system memory when idle. All told, the utility is a must-have if you need to quickly locate files on your PC.
