Locate32 Web Site - Downloads

So ok it has to be installed but it goes in real fast and complies a database fast too, when done it uninstalls real fast. No restarts. It can be left installed when done if required, just one small setting to change to stop it starting on windows boot up.

Two versions too, a 32bit and a 64bit version, the closest i'm going to get to WinXP's Search Companion.

Highly customiseable and easy to use, tested trying to find a hidden system file on Win7. Win7's search tool can't find it without a lot of trouble and messing around. Installing it and finding the file(s) i want it too takes a fraction of the time WinVista and Win7 takes just to warm up and get started, trustforwthy too.

It found it. Magic.

I'm glad it works for you. many friends of mine use it daily along with FSL - Super Finder
