    Windows Search 4-Search Enhancement Pack

    My friend is running XP with SP3 and all Microsoft updates installed.

    One of the updates was Windows Search 4 Search Enhancement Pack, and now Search Desktop appears on her Taskbar. This seems pointless, because she has the Show Desktop feature on the Taskbar. Can the Search Desktop feature be uninstalled, and if so how?

    Advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks and regards,Roy

    Don't know if this is exactly what you are talking about or not but it seems very similar so...

    There is a Windows Search 4.0 item in Add/Remove Programs.
    The Search Desktop toolbar is a full-fledged search engine while show desktop merely shows the desktop but you can disable the Search desktop toolbar, just right click on taskbar>>Toolbars>>Windows Search Deskbar and untic it.
