I have the same prob as I had last year.
I now have a 'new' (2 y.o.) computer my Brother-in-Law gave me. It's a beauty.
But, I have the Windows Search and Desktop Search getting in the way of my searches.
I cannot uninstall them.
They do not show up in either of my uninstallers. I have 'Show Updates' clicked in the Windows uninstaller.
I did a fresh install of Windows Search 4.0 today.
I cannot "Scroll down to the updates. locate KB940157 and click on it...click on "Remove" - It's not there.
Doing this didn't work either : "Click Start > Run > type in the Run dialogue box type
This is just one of those annoyances that is using up an hour or so a day as I muddle through Google but get no answers.
I have 5 Microsoft NET.Frameworks ranging from 1.1 to 4.0
O'course any illuminations would be very greatly appreciated.
