Specifies whether Search Companion should automatically download content updates during local and Internet searches. When the user searches the local machine or the Internet, Search Companion occasionally connects to Microsoft to download an updated privacy policy and additional content files used to format and display results. If you enable this setting, Search Companion will not download content updates during searches. If you disable or do not configure this setting, Search Companion will download content updates unless the user is using Classic Search. Note: Internet searches will still send the search text and information about the search to Microsoft and the chosen search provider. Choosing Classic Search will turn off the Search Companion feature completely. Fix: (1) GPO: Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Internet Communication Management\Internet Communication settings\Turn off Search Companion content file updates (2) REG: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\SearchCompanion!DisableContentFileUpdates
