Yes.

If Windows Search is removed from components, then you lose search box in start menu altogether.

Disable it in 'services' if you don't require it, this will keep the actual search box present in start menu.

That depends on how you managed to remove it in the first place.

Hello Amber,

Did the program have a backup and restore option that you could use to undo what it did?

If not, then you might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before you used this duplicate file cleaner may be able to undo this for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
