Re: blocking Google Desktop

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.

True, it's not enabled by default, but Google is pitching this as an easy way to access your work documents from home (or vise-versa) .. and *that* is a serious security risk.

In the corporate world, users don't get to make their own choices. Management makes them, and it's the IT department's job to enforce that -- against the user's will kicking and screaming, if necessary.
