I have long entertained the idea of reducing my computer overload by removing the software that I seldom or rarely use but are just around chewing up CPU cycles during startup and while in normal use or otherwise occupying my registry and disk space.
So I thought this ought to be a piece of cake (bad example to use when dieting).
Well, my cake example was ominous enough when I started by trying to uninstall Microsoft Windows Desktop Search.
I got a warning message which essentially said if you remove me, it will gum up your computer saying that a series of programs (including Mouser's beloved Find and Run Robot and others ) and Microsoft patches etc may no longer work.
See jpg attached.
Has anyone removed Microsoft Windows Desktop Search and experienced the "End of The World" ?
Any suggestions and help would be much appreciated.
