    The Error Which you are getting is caused by the system when he is unable to find Windows desktop search. The Uncdms.dll is the part of the Windows Desktop Search. So if the Windows is unable to find the same dll file then the system will this kind of the error. It can be suggested that this will not create any problem. Thats all i know about this error. Hope you like it. Say thanks if you like the same.

    This occurs when you have uninstalled the Windows Desktop search from the system or the it is got infected by the some kind of the spyware. So if you have not deleted that and still getting the problem then you are infected. There is no other way to work with this until and unless you uninstall Windows Desktop search then reinstall it again. Then only you will get rid of the same. Also scan system for the Virus.
