it doens’t automatically do this. you installed something and it was in the installation as a little check box. it’s easy to uninstall in programs, add/remove (depending on your os).
as for whayt it’s for, it is used the same way the new search in windows is used, to search your entire system including emails and files. personally, i never use it, but missed it a few times when installing something and had to remove it.
