I installed the MSN Desktop Search Beta a couple of days ago, this integrates an outlook search tool (http://www.lookoutsoft.com) with a desktop search tool – the integration with outlook is very similar to the LookOut product, the desktop search technology is pretty cool, the application indexes content on your desktop as a background task, and adds an optional toolbar to your application tray (see below).

DeskSearch

Typing keywords into the search field displays a list of files that match the name you are looking for, or files that contain the word(s) you are looking for, you an then quickly and easily open the items. I’ve not noticed any performance issues on my Toshiba M200 Tablet PC since installing the MSN Desktop Search Beta – so, at this point it’s all good…
