It will continue to work, but I won't run it all the time now security updates will end.
I guess I'll be moving to Windows Search. Is it as good? Are there alternatives to consider?
nzkc: You haven't said what OS you're using....
On Windows 7 I find the Start search terrific. Just start typing what you're after and its there. Could be an app, a document, mp3 etc.
I think by default it only indexes your "profile" (My Documents, My Pictures etc) but I keep all my stuff there anyway.
Don't need anything else myself.
