TextPad, shareware download from will do this. There is a menu option to Find In Files. The key is not to open any files within TextPad, then launch the Find In Files (Ctrl+F5), put in the search parameters; Find what:, In files: (*.pdf), In folder: [browse to the folder holding the PDFs; then click Find. Works like a charm.

I googled, and downloaded PDF Searcher and File Hunter but none works. I
want to search for a text string in multiple PDF files at once, does anybody
know any helpful tool?
