Windows Search 4.0 Slower Here: How About You?

Just a quick query here for some feedback from GBM Readers. A few weeks ago Microsoft pushed out an update to Windows Search with the numerical designation of 4.0. I didn’t download it when it was available but picked it up through Windows Update. Knowing full well that Windows Search needs to do some indexing I kept my Tablet PC running all night with both Outlook and OneNote 2007 running (the two apps I do most of my searching in.)

This morning was the first time I’ve had need since the update to do some searching in OneNote 2007 and I noticed things were noticeably slower than they were before. Outlook seems slower as well, but not as significantly as OneNote 2007.


Now this may be any number of things, but I’m wondering if anyone else has seen this kind of behavior.
