You get the picture, one good link always seems to lead to another. However, when I saw the reminder by the Microsoft Update Product Team today that Microsoft is planning to release Windows Search (KB 940157) via Windows Update late this month, I knew it was time to pull together all the resources I located after reading James's post for Security Garden readers (as well as my own future reference!)
According to the Microsoft Product Update Team, if you have Windows XP, Windows Search 4.0 will be an "Optional Update". Windows Search 4.0 will be shown as a "Recommended Update" for Windows Vista SP1. It is important to note that the installation of Windows Search 4.0 will involve a re-indexing of the data on the computer. See the details in Reminder - Windows Search 4 coming to WU soon...
