Windows 7: File search by properties

File search by properties

I recently installed Kaspersky Internet Security. The downloaded file is called "startup.exe". There would be no way of guessing that this had anything to do with Kaspersky. Suppose I were searching for this file I would use the search term "Kaspersky" but in this case it would be no good. However, the word "Kaspersky" is in the dropdown window when one selects "Properties" in the context menu. Are there any search utilities that would find the file according to what is in the "Properties" tab?

If you search for files and folders, and search for "Kaspersky" (or whatever name they are using for the folder), you should be able to find it that way because of the folder it is in.
