Hi Curt, I uninstalled FindOnClick just to see what you were on about:
5) During un-install I was asked this question I really hate to get:
>Remove shared file?<
(see attachment in previous post)
Please remember, this is a result of Windows' retarded method of program (un)installation tracking. But, the SNU.dll is used by all
the OnClick utilities - personally I'd rather be told that the file may no longer be in use rather than having it just left or deleted.
In a perfect world all software would be portable and you could just delete the directory it resides in. The OS would pick up the changes and take action as appropriate, (remove shortcuts, context menus, etc), instead of relying on the abortion used by Microsoft, (ie. the registry).
Also, the shortcut in Quick Launch was left behind.
All shortcuts were removed on my machine, QuickLaunch and (non-default) Startup menu location.Edit:
BTW, I thought I'd give SearchGT a go since everyone seems to like it, (Default install
1) Doesn't integrate to DOpus - I don't use Explorer at all.
2) Context menu in DOpus takes you to results, (of which there are none), not to search dialog, (which is anti-intuitive IMO).
Result of the two above is that it takes more effort to use, ie. Start Menu->SearchGT->Search GT
3) Results of searching D: for *.jpg including sub-dirs, hidden and system folders (Default search options):
SearchGT 0.7s 424 files
FindOnClick 5.52s 29627 files (FYI, Default Install
- launched by context menu on the drive in a DOpus lister, type in *.jpg and hit search.)
Based on the results, I think I'll be sticking with FindOnClick - I have more chance of finding the file I want with the least effort.
If I wanted to be even lazier with FindOnClick, I could of gone to Expert search and just click 'Pictures and Photos' - 37081 files in 9.61s
4) I don't know if you've ever uninstalled SearchGT BUT
the thing I really hate to see is: Please Restart your computer to complete uninstallation.
My results may be biased since I have got a license for OnClick Utilities, (that was essentially free), but I did state that up front.
Also BTW, thanks to rjbull for mentioning BareGrep - has now been added to my flashdrive
