This is the best Desktop Search software I have tried yet.

This release is blazing fast and easy to use. I would suggest everyone try it if you ever search for files or emails and find normal scrolling or built-in XP search to be too slow.

Download from here from Microsoft

You can type in the toolbar to get immediate results as you type (notice the different file types – searches all file types and their attachments, including powerpoint, excel, word, infopath, access, text, etc.): 

            SNAG-20060720-1532-46

Or hit return to see full result window and view the contents of each search item:

           SNAG-20060720-1534-13

You can easily filter based on other criteria:

          SNAG-20060720-1537-05

Awesome tool. Huge time saver.

Drawbacks… It uses Microsoft Indexing to index the files on your computer in the background, so there is processing overhead. Though, it’s negligible from what I have seen.

Thanks,
Murray
