Outlook Search Prompt 2Outlook Search Prompt `Hi,
 I have a user who has OUTLOOK 2010 on XP Pro workstation. Whenever she enter something in Seachbox in her OUTLOOK, it displays "Click here to enable Instant Search". If I click that message line, then it creates a popup window "To enable the instant search feature in Outlook, you must download ...". When she download that program, then it creates a little search window in the taskbar area. So she un-installed that program, but in her OUTLOOK, the message - "Click here to enable Instant Search"- keeps showing up.
 How can I get rid of that prompt for good?

There is no way that I know of to  get rid of that prompt.  I would have her install it again and just leave it be.  She can use it when she needs it.  Its a nice feature.

the problem is she hates that little search windows in the task bar area. The interesting thing is that I don't have that coming up on my computer and I use the same OUTLOOK.
