I'm sure I'm not alone in getting frustrated that I can find what I'm looking for so quickly on the Internet and yet until recently it took forever to find information by keyword search on my local PC!

The finished code for MSN Search Toolbar is now available for download via this link. In addition to many other features the most useful one to me is Desktop search - this automatically creates an index of all the documents (including attachements) and emails on my machine which enables me to use it much like an internet search engine to perform keyword searches on my local PC. At the end of the install wizard there's also the option to install add-ins from other vendors including Adobe's PDF viewer which extends the index and keyword search to PDF documents too - it's really cool!
