search for a file with a specific word in it by JR
In XP (and previous versions of Windows) I was able to perform a wild-card search of a drive, directory, folder while looking for a specific word. I can not find how to do that in VISTA. How do I search a drive for files with the words "Class I" in a powerpoint file? Thanks

XP Style search tool? by Mickey Mouse

Problems with Vista backup program by No Name
I've not been able to complete any file backups successfully for about two months. Some of the error messages suggest that I need to tell my antivirus program to stop interfering with accesses to wherever the list of previous backups is stored - but so far I've had no success finding out just where that is. I have found that a program C:\Windows\System32\sdclt.exe seems to be responsible for...
