I am using Google desktop version 4. By default search across computers is
not enabled. Can someone explain me why all the noise if I just don't use
the feature.

The noise is because many of us have dozens, or hundreds, or thousands of
users we're responsible for, who *will* enable it because it looks cool, not
realizing the security implications.  A significant fraction will enable it
Just Because, even though they then never actually *use* the functionality....
