      Does this search the text of files, and does it search networked drives.
      Some programs are great, but do not search network drives which is a pain
      for me.

      Subject: [Vista] Agent Ransack - an alternative to any Windows search
      function

      I would like to suggest an alternative to any official Windows search
      mechanism. It's called Agent Ransack and it is fast and clean and truly
      wonderful. I have been using it for years and use it almost every day.

      You can point to an entire partition or any folder to do the search on and
      you can automatically include all subfolders and you can download and
      install it here:

      http://www.mythicsoft.com/page.aspx?type=agentransack&page=home%c2%a0

      Once installed when you open explorer you can right click on the partition
      or any folder within and you will see an option to use Agent Ransack. The
      following are some of the ways you can do the search:

      wood    = will list all your files containing the string wood in the name

      wood*bike  = will list all your files containing the string wood AND the
      string bike in the name.

      *wood*.txt  = will list all your text files that contain the string wood in
      the name.

      *wood*.jpg  =  will list all your pictures that contain the string wood in
      the name.

      You can also search the CONTENTS  of files for strings.  For example to find
      all your text files that contain the string oops, 

      put *.txt in the File name and oops in the field called Containing text:
