Thanks for your reply dmhoo29 , I have read that it is hidden in amongst a M.S update and is not liked too much as it can cause various problems.

So my question is now "how do I delete it"

Install it... then uninstall through add/remove programs.

Hello hpandus,

 

As you can see earlier in the thread the uncdms.dll file is related to the Windows Desktop Search.

 

1. Uninstall the program through add / remove programs

2. Reboot your computer

3. Reinstall if you have a desire to continue using it

Windows Search 4.0 for Windows XP (KB940157)

 

That's the generalized version of the issue. If you provide information such as what make / model your computer is and what operating system you are running I may be able to provide additional information, however the steps remain true for Vista and XP. Windows 7 has the search ability built in and is not a stand alone download as far as I know.
