Do you perhaps refer to the Wolfram Notebook Indexer, which is an 
indexing plug-in for Google Desktop?

This utility has been shipping with Mathematica since at least 6.0 and 
perhaps even since 5.2.  The Mathematica installer offers to install it 
after the main installation of Mathematica itself.  If you didn't 
install it then, you may be able to find it on your installation media.

You can also find the plug-in by browsing to:

and then searching for it; however the version there is 1.1 beta, 
whereas the one shipped with Mathematica 6 is version 2.
