+ - Microsoft: Google broke Windows search ->

Submitted by

Barence writes "Microsoft has accused Google of breaking Windows Desktop Search with its new Outlook plug-in for Google Apps. The plug-in disables Windows Desktop Search upon installation by removing a registry key. What's more, uninstalling the Google plug-in doesn't restore the registry key, leaving Windows and Outlook search facilities crippled. Google now admits its software disables the search facilities — as well as Adobe and PGP encryption plug-ins — and says it's updated Google Apps Sync so that it repairs the registry keys properly."
