Windows 7: Searching for specific words in documents

Searching for specific words in documents

I want to be able to find documents that have specific words in them. The result must be only those documents that have all of these specific words. When I run a search I get documents with all 3 words, or 2 words or just 1 of the words. I just want the documents that have all 3 of the words. Can this be done?
