Whats NEW!!!

- Now updated with NEWER search engine and search filters from Vista SP2

- For compatibility reasons Entries_*.ini will prevent you from removing 'Terminal Services', 'Network Provisioning' & 'MSMail and MAPI' components if you are using it with nLite (you dont need to but I recommend you keep 'Search Assistant')

- Addon/UpdatePack makers are welcome to modify/improve/translate/release this addon for use with your language (including English) all I ask is a honorable mention ;)

- Program can now be (un)installed via Add Remove Windows Components


- Can also be turned off during unattended setup by adding the following to the Components secion WINNT.SIF


- Plus other improvements...

I noticed there a new high-priority security update for Windows Search. Is this something that you are able/willing to incorporate into your addon?

Here's a link for the info on the update: Vulnerability in Windows Search Could Allow Information Disclosure (963093)

Thanks, again, Ricktendo for this update. :thumbsup_anim:

This addon was only meant to show that it could be done, you should be using a UpdatePack that includes this program

Thanks for the quick update! :worthy:

Just curious, though, is there a particular reason you recommend this be in the update pack? The only pack I'm aware of that includes it is OnePiece's - and his has FAR TOO MUCH stuff in there for me.

BTW what version do you use, RMVM or nLite?

I use RVM to integrate the update pack, IE8, and .Net Framework, but I use nLite for all addons (Including your Search addon) and Windows tweaks. Thanks again!
