Search for Files with FileSeek
Many of the times we want to search for a string or keyword that is present inside a file. FileSeek is a small program that can search for files very quickly and can also search for string inside any files. It doesn’t use indexing so it might be a bit slower than other program but it does the job well.
It searches for the content inside the files and displays the result containing an except of the text containing the keyword. Some of its features are

It may not be the best, but if you are looking for a small and free application, it can perform quite well without indexing or maintaining a database. It require .Net Framework 2.0 to work. It runs on Windows 2000/XP/Vista.
