i think the best way to learn the legitimat user is by build his profile that including quantity of serches he made in the search box, by C# code.
there is way to fire event in C# when user is typing character on windows explorer search box?

You might be better off learning the searches performed by the user from the registry values. The searches performed by the user in Windows 7 are stored at the following registry location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ WordWheelQuery

However, the index file is located at C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Search\Data.
