Windows 7: How to use XP Mode Search in Windows 7

How to use XP Mode Search in Windows 7

I love XP's search. Is there a way to be able to run it from Windows 7 like as if I installed it? I know when I install an old program it comes up as say Excel 2000 XP MODE in my Win 7 programs list. But I am not installing XP search, just using it's capabilities that I think rock! It's always worked wonders for me! I have XP Mode searching and am finding files I had thought long gone that Vista and 7 just couldn't find! I may be wrong on this on how to use the 7 search feature but I could never find jack using it! Or Vista for that matter. XP Mode is finally doing what I need. Now i just want the convenience of getting some of the built in capabilities of XP onto my programs list in 7. I already tried dragging the link on the start menu into the programs list in XP Mode and haven't seen it come up yet. Anyone got any advice to get this going?

Ahhh I am now reinstalling my lost backup of bookmarks into Firefox from a Windows machine that crashed on me and i forgot where the program kept it's backup file. Thank you XP Mode search! I should be on a commercial!
