 System Agent Ransack - Super fast file search utility
I searched high and low for a good file search program and here is my pick. Agent Ransack puts Windows default search to shame. It's faster. It can do so much more, such as "regular expressions". Thanks to Jean in Montana for reminding me about this one. I've been using it for a long time but have never posted it in a newsletter.
