File: GoogleDesktopCrawl.exe


This is an indexing component of the Google Desktop Search program, a free utility that lets you use Google's search technology to locate items on your own computer. This process runs in the background and is responsible for crawling through your system's directory structure to find files for indexing. This lets Desktop Search find them efficiently (without an index, each search could take hours.)

I've been using this for several months since I installed GoogleDesktop2 Sidebar (it's a Google plug-in from Google.com). It has been found useful & harmless (as per Norton & AVG & Ad-Aware & Spybot & more). Today I'm getting recurring error saying python23.dll file is missing so need to reinstall app to fix problem.  See also: Link   A. Mason
I have a screen popping up that looks fishy, asking for my .Net passport signon. I traced it back to this program as the running process associated with the window. The screen looks like a hoax to me. I'm deleting it., and getting information from Google on the proper file size, etc from this process.   Mark
