Desktop search engines are designed to find information stored on your personal computer rather than on the internet. Therefore, upon first activating one of these programs it will spend a lot of time, preferably over night, scanning and indexing your hard drives. Once this is done it will leave a program running in the background to index much of what you do and leave it readily findable.
