Can i run the "xp search companion" on Windows 7, and if so, how? Maybe an XP style RUN command line? Is Windows 7 reverse engineered alien technology, as VISTA certainly must have been? Thank you kindly, in advance.

Kind of the same thing. Type your search string in the run box and press enter.

But no, I haven't seen any MS way to do that. Might be a third party, see softpedia maybe.

A Pit Bull is like a gun you can pet. And there is no safety on it.

Don't like searching without an animated dog telling you what to do?

"Is Windows 7 reverse engineered alien technology"

No, it's a step forward. Try to keep up.

Yes, the built in search function works better and faster. Just click the start orb and begin typing, you do not even need to hit enter since suggestions begin popping up as soon as you have typed a few letters. Just continue typing a word or two and see if the results are there, if not then continue or back space and try again. Much easier without the training wheels. I hear there are still people using AOL (and their filters/paid for content) rather than going directly to the internet.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You might give FileSearchEX a try. It is kinda like XP.

The problem is that, in XP, you had all sorts of search options - date, name, modified, etc. You could see / choose whether hidden or system files were searched.

XP Search is just better *by far* because of this, and I *wants* it back :)

I know this post is a bit late but Riider, when things go backwards it's really hard to 'keep up'. Yeah it's so simple dude, just click search. OK, so when I want to know which dates it was last modified or it contains certain text within the document ot wether it should be hidden or not...the list goes on. No maybe there is a way to do all this in Windows 7 but it definitely isn't easy to find. So I'd suggest that unless you have a constructive response, don't respond!!
