Windows GREP - Great Tool

You know (or think) the file is out there.  You have a pretty good idea about one or two things that are (or ought) to be in it.  Find it fast with Windows GREP.

I like Windows Grep - a lot. It's easy to use, and seems very fast.

If you need to find a file in a hurry, this is a great tool for the job.  In addition to plain string searches, you can specify case-sensitivity, whole-word finding, and, as the name implies, search using regular expressions.

You can download it (free) here:

Thank you for that. The Windows 7 search capabilities or rather lack of them are driving me around the bend - (one of the several unbroken things in XP that Microsoft managed to fix with 7). I have just downloaded this utility and will report back.
