Google Desktop Search

Everyone tells me to get Lookout and forget about Google’s desktop search.

But I want to be able to search my entire desktop, not just Outlook.

I tried X1 and hated it.

So I, like everyone else it seems, downloaded Google Desktop Search late last week.

First it took about a day to index my hard drive. It was a bit of a nuisance and got in the way of some other applications I use that need to scan my hard drive on a regular basis.

But after all that work, something isn’t working right.

It worked fine yesterday.

Whenever I try to do a desktop search today, it get an error message that the browser can’t connect to 127.0.0.1:4664.

If anyone has any ideas what’s wrong, I’d love to hear them.
