google desktop windows 7

Google Desktop Search has been discontinued

I was looking to install Google Desktop Search on my Windows 7 64 bit system. I could not see any relevant link from google which wasinteresting because it is google’s own product. The page that appears at the top of search Inside Google Desktop is actually blogspot site (owned by google also). It does not specifically say, google destop search has been discontinued. But if you read it carefully, towards the end of the first paragraph, it says

As of September 14 [2011], Google Desktop will no longer be available for download, and existing installations will not be updated to include new features or fixes.

Thanks again to all of our users. It’s been a fun journey.

If you visit the previous home page of google desktop, you will see a glimps of the image and then redirected to the above site.

That actually says Google Desktop Search has been discontinued. Although the older version of google desktop are still available from CNET and is supported by Google.
