The downloaded zip file also includes both the ps1 script and a compiled exe (executable) version of the script for those who want to run it without launching powershell or if you want to place the exe in your windows start-up folder to clear the search entries each time you start windows.  It works on Vista, Windows 7 or windows 8 and server 2008 or 2012. Getting to your startup folder in Windows 8 or Server 2012 requires browsing to the  location below
