What are desktop search applications?

Desktop search programs index the files and documents on your computer. These programs are available from many different sources (including Google Desktop Search and Yahoo! Desktop Search), and are built into many operating systems, such as recent versions of Windows and Mac OS X.

Note:
While they are convenient for users, the collection and aggregation of personal data can pose additional risks if your computer is not secure.
