Stay with the latest version 2 (build 18) from 2008!
Remove the nagging screen by the following method (taken from somewhere else :):
In XP just change your system date to 2030, exit / restart CDS, then go to the registry (Start / Run / regedit)
Local Machine / Software / Copernic / DesktopSearch2 / System and change the registry key UpdateAvailable from 1 to 0. Then change the clock back to the correct date and you are done


The pro version also exist

If you have a big size archive the paying Pro version is better imho ! ;) (Alas does not seems to work well on win7-64bits). But It works ok on XP. ;)
The big missing feature imho : is an option to remove similar documents from keyword searches. Otherwise this is a great software. ;)
