Definitely use Everything

Follow Clifford's advice and use Everything. I've been using it for about 2 months now with Indexing in Windows 7 turned off. Everything finds whatever I'm looking for in a few seconds. Not bad considering I have two 1 terabyte hard drives. It definitely blows Windows Search out of the water on speed.
Thnx Cliff for the link...surely will do...

Yup. Definitly beats Windows Explorer.

It's a great piece of software, if only it could integrate into Windows. :)

Perhaps you could start a protest to get the European Union to sue Microsoft over incorporating the search feature like they did the IE browser; then we could have another set of Windows 7 OSes like the N editions. Maybe the S editions. Of course then you almost have to offer the combined NS edition...

- "Hey you are running Windows 7"
- "NS!"
- "NS?"
- "Windows 7 with No Sh*t Included :p"

PFFT - Seriously, who, other than the software companies and the EU, give a damn about included features in Windows?

It would just be nice to have better intergration of software into Windows. First step is the context menu, etc...
