Search Engine ?

Is there a free, or inexpensive, search engine that will search the text in the documents in all my files, and not just by file name ?

First post here. I am really surprised not to see more discussion of this, and I have not found any sort of acceptable alternative since starting with Windows 7 in March of 2011 I simply do not understand the Windows 7 search engine capabilities. Perhaps the best way to highlight this is with...

win7 search engine
I always use the search engine a lot, and in win7 I can't manage to find out how to search inside files and folders. Need to search for specific strings in textfiles. Is this feature not implemented in win7 or is it just me that can't find it?
