What does Windows Desktop Search do for me?

Just installed 2008 on Friday, install and file conversion went pretty well. Monday I found Windows Desktop Search indexing thousands of files and using most of my CPU. I found where I can 'snooze' the program, but that doesn't seem to have much effect. There is a Process called 'searchfilterhost.exe' running constantly (using ~60% on my CPU while I'm writing this), I don't particularly like this.

We have a pretty good file system so finding files is almost never a problem, I can usually find any email I need, so unless WDS does something functionally beneficial for me in SW I question the need and am tempted to uninstall it

What does WDS do for me in the Solidworks world?
