Do not use Windows Search for searches

This policy controls if the search should use the Windows Search service or not.

When enabled the searches will be limited in scope to the programs and control panel sections only (unless also disabled).

If the Search service is disabled on the machine then this setting is ignored and searches are always limited.

If you do not configure this policy setting then it defaults to using the Windows Search Service.
