I was wondering why my context menus have been saying "Kill Bill" since

Why does everyone call it a "desktop" search tool? I have only three items on my desktop: My Computer, My Documents, and Recycle
Bin. It's not hard for me to see what they are! :) The tools should be called "hard drive" search tools.

Dunno. They should just call it a "search" tool.
