View Full Version : XP "Search" program

Does anyone know if the "Search " program installed in all XP versions are 100% reliable.

I have found that occasionally it does not find all Files with a word that I am searching for.

Is it me or the program.

Depends what youre searching for. If its hidden it may not find it. It doesnt work 100% in Vista or Win7 either

It is a common word used in 8 excel wookbooks.

It finds them in 6 workbooks, but not the other 2.

I use "Everything" search engine, it is so very much better that the search built into XP. I also use it in Win 7. It works instantaneously.
