Windows 7's can't-find-stuff-that's-not-indexed-yet search just made
me look stupid by not finding a string in some files.

I downloaded the freeware Agent Ransack and it works fine. Has a
simple checkbox option to replace Windows Search as the default search
in the shell. Has a 64-bit version.

Any other suggestions? I've used Funduc's Search & Replace in the past
but it's not free.
