    I'd actually like to know how you did this because I am TRYING to get rid of the Spotlight icon from my menu bar. QuickSilver has long taken care of any use for Spotlight for me.

    And on a 12" iBook, Menu Bar real estate is pretty valuable to me.

    My spotlight is showing up but it is not working. No matter what I put in it says no results found.

    Any ideas?

    Mine did that a while ago, but it's working now. Have you tried restarting?

    Apparently, in your case, you'll be rewarded for pirating FrontRow. :eek: ;) :D

    This might help

    startup volume/system/library/launchagents/com.apple.Spotlight.plist
    get (extendede) info for this file.
    permissions should be: system read and write; the rest only read.
    fuddling with this will cause problems.
    b.t.w: opening in property list editor gives the opportunity to "keep it alive" or not, i.e. to activate the program or not.
    working in the terminal: man mdutil, etc.
    hope this helps

    How about using OnyX to rebuild the index AND try toggling the "Show Spotlight Icon" option.
