Windows 7 search for files&folders...can i make it search like XP?

I asked this when i first got 7 about 1.5 years ago, but i never found a good replacement to make 7's file search anywhere near as good or similar as the XP search. Now 1.5 year later, is there anything like that?

Am using Agent Ransack - Free File Searching Utility
The search function in FreeCommander - freeware file manager is also very good.
