I like X1, but it costs $50.

Disclaimer: When I wrote to X1 to complain about a bug I found, they
offered me a free upgrade at the end of the Pro 7 Beta (which solved the
bug - I'm using it now).

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.
