10.4: How to disable the Spotlight menu
Authored by: elmo123 on Aug 05, '06 07:39:45PM

It sounds like the best course of action to just set your privileges for /System/Library/CoreServices/Search.bundle to no access.

The problem is, the OSX Get Info dialog doesn't let you do this, admin or not. I used Super Get Info set my read write and execute privileges to false, but a sudo chmod should work.

Moving or renaming Search.bundle or editing /etc/hostconfig would disable Spotlight for all users, which is probably not what you want.

I sure do like being inside this fancy computer.
