I continue to look for an app that will search my harddrive for files containg a selected word. The Search facility in XP does that, but I find it slow and often unreliable. Are there other aps (preferably free ones) that work better than XP Search? Thanks. ...batpark

As usual watch out for foistware (unwanted programs that are installed with the main program unless you uncheck them)
