Is it just me, or has the Windows search function become totally useless on text files? It fails to find the simplest text phrases that I can see in plain view. I have to open the text file itself and perform the search. How stupid is that? It's totally mucked up. There are dozen or so Wingrep clones out there, so I was wondering if anyone had a particular favorite one for Windows XP that works well?

Thanks.
I guess the best kind of searching app would be one that added itself to the Explorer menu when
you right-click on a directory for searching. So it's convenient, and not trouble-some to
use when you want it right there and now.

It's in development. Google wants to get it out before WinFS (and with WinFS being sliced from Longhorn, it's a lot more likely) and whatever Apple is calling their desktop search system in Tiger. Sometime next year, I'd imagine.
