    I would appear it removes those languages from XP knowledge so it wont be able to convert to english.

    Indexing service speeds ups searches when you use windows search thing.
    I suggest you serioulsy disable it to speed up yourr pc
    and if you wanna do Ultra Fast searches for files etc then either use:

    X1 (very good, super fast, simple-file searcher)
    DTSearch Desktop (more advanced)

    sorry no link

    You guys all (except for singaboiy) think im an idiot...i have it disabled, it was a part i added to my guide, saying it should be removed. I know exactly what it does, only reason I am asking if it is "uninstallable (not disabled, i ahve it disabled) is becuase when i went to uninstall it i got that error message (in my first post) which is why i am unsure if i should take it off or not....
