Solved search phrases problem for .dbf files

Specs: Windows XP
Hi,
I have a problem with searching phrases or words in .dbf files. I want to search for example the phrase "fire" in a certain .dbf file, where I know that this file contains this phrase. Even if I search just in this specific folder it doesn't find anything.
I tried with other files like .xls, .doc etc and it works perfectly. So the profile should not be the cause.
The problem is that it worked before, when I had another PC, but it had also XP
Any idea how to fix it?
Would appreciate it very much.
Cheers,
Haraldinho

I downloaded grep for windows. It's used from a command prompt.

Thanks very much for the fast answer.
If possible I don't want to install another program, because it is just for these file types where the Windows search tool can't find anything.
Do u have any other solution maybe?
thx in advance

It's an executable that doesn't get installed.
