Google few days lodged an antitrust complaint against Windows Vista built in search saying it is practically impossible to turn off Vista Desktop search functionality. Google is also claiming that Microsoft Vista operating system impairs the performance of desktop search programs like Google Desktop Search. The statement issue by Google spokesperson says
The search boxes built throughout Vista are hard-wired to Microsoft's own desktop search product, with no way for users to choose an alternate provider
