Really... if you have a well organized fileing system and don't try to run your computer entirely by searching for stuff... it mostly gets in the way. Windows 2000, XP and Windows 7 have all included file indexing systems that are supposed to make searching a lot easier... I don't think I've used the in-machine file search tools in any of them more than a hadfull of times in over a decade.
