I have installed it twice now at work. It will work for maybe a few days then stop. Everytime I try to use it I see a message that it is not running and tells me to restart it from the startup folder. Clicking the icon in the startup folder doesn't restart Windows Desktop Search, nor does a reboot. It simply will not run.

I have a large # of files on my system and this could be part of the problem.

It doesn't say. When I click on help it gives me the version of Windows XP, 5.1 SP2.

The version I was running was distributed by the company that I work for and might be older. I have downloaded the latest off of the web. I hope that it works better.
