Hello

Has anyone else encountered problems with the search
facility within XP? Replacing the Find files and folders
from older versions of windows, I find the search
facility wholly inadequet, has anyone else experienced
the same problems? or know of any fixed to improve the
search function in particular finding files with specific
text held within.

Cheers
