    I dont want to turn off Outlook indexing completely as like the fast searching, but how can I stop having my emails appearing when I type something into the start menu?

    My PST file is passworded and outlook asks for a password every time it opens, so clicking on these results takes you nowhere unless Outlook is running.

    I just dont want my email subjects popping up when I type something into the start menu!

    Fixed it, kinda. In the start menu settings, set "Dont Search" for "search other files and libraries"

    Just curious, but what's the reaosn behind this? I absolutely love the fact that I can search e-mails and attachments this way.

    I sometimes let other people use the PC and I'd much rather not have them reading my email subjects :)

    Setup separate accounts for guest users. Its the ONLY way I let people touch my machines, even my wife.

    I use the computer 99% of the time, so a separate account is unnecessary. However, I use the laptop to VNC in a lot, and I'd rather not have viagra ads popping up when I'm showing something to somebody ;)
