  1. Does anyone know of a plug-in for Microsoft OneNote? Google Desktop Search can’t index that natively.

  2. In Windows Vista, Google infact uses the index created by Microsoft’s desktop search service.Its main feature of indexing the files from your computer, is no longer enabled by default.If you want to enable Google Desktop’s index, you need to select “Enable Enhanced Content Indexing” when you install the software (Google Desktop 5.8) or in the options page.

    Probably Google is quite clever here and very aware of the fact that microsoft will place hurdles..
