Google desktop is taking screenshots

[ #30457 ]
For some time now, I have the feeling something is taking screenshots on regular intervals. My screen freezes and blanks for a split second every now and then. I never really paid attention to WHEN exactly it happened. I just know it happens. I got a bunch of those adware and spyware scanners to scan my system, without results. I eventually let it slide. If you use Google Desktop to look for local files, you can also search your web history. I never really thought about how Google Desktop gets the small page screenshots.. I figured it was using browser cache. I suddenly realized that Google Desktop was actually taking snapshots. *OUCH*
