Removing or disabling windows desktop search (searchindexer.exe)

I've seen several notes that says you can uninstall this by unintalling windows desktop search.  I don't see windows desktop search specifically listed in programs.  All I can find is Windows Search 4.0.  Is this searchindexer.exe or the other search option??

Windows Search 4.0 is the program you are looking for.
If you are using Vista, searchindexer is part of the system.  Instead of removing it  - try disabling the service first.

Sorry - just noticed your tag - you are using Xp, so go ahead and remove Windows Search 4.0 program.
