Search handlers

The Shell supports several search utilities that allow users to locate namespace objects such as files or printers. You can create a custom search engine and make it available to users by implementing and registering a search handler. (This feature is supported only under Windows XP or earlier.) Search handlers can be either static or dynamic. Static handlers are loaded only when they are selected by the user. Dynamic handlers are loaded by the Shell at startup and are not terminated until the Shell exits.
