Not surprisingly, the "Disable Standard Spotlight menu" option is broken in Snow Leopard (10.6).  I wanted to express my hope that this can be fixed in the next version, since I had got myself used to forgetting that Spotlight exists and just relying on HoudahSpot.  Thanks!

Hi!

So far I was unable to find a way to re-create this feature under Snow Leopard.

Hi!

The third party utility Spotless 3 does offer an option to turn off the Spotlight menu.

I have not checked how they do it. But they do warn about it affecting all user accounts on the machine. Thus I assume it involves somehow modifying /System/Library/CoreServices/Search.bundle
