Microsoft to Change Vista's Inbuilt Search After Google Complains

In response to a complaint by Google claiming that Vista’s inbuilt search functionality competed unfairly with Google Desktop Search, Microsoft has agreed to make changes to its latest version operating system, Windows Vista.

Google has made a confidential complaint against Microsoft to the Justice department over Microsoft’s indexing software. Google complained that the default indexing software in Vista named "Instant Search" could not be easily turned off by users which causes the computer to significantly slow down if installed Google Desktop, a similar desktop search product from Google.

So far, the changes Microsoft will make to Vista have not yet been made public.
