     My first rev of this desktop search engine. Features include extermely fast file searches (often less then a second), music/document/image filters, file type filters, access and file size filters etc. Code includes Achilles 1.5 MTSE with many improvements in speed and functionality, also my Lightning 1.4 registry class. Examples of building a binary file dump with copymemory api, hacking a collection object from memory, using the wmi scripting object, multi threading, and much, much more.. If you think this is good, or you wanna use it, then all I ask is that you take the time to vote.. Cheers John

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

I always have Windows Indexing turned off.
Does your program need Windows Indexing, turned on ?

As I mentioned I have Windows Indexing turned off, as it slows my XP Pro down too much.
Could you emulate what the free UltraSearch does brilliantly -
- It uses the Master File Table (MFT)
- Even though it does not create or need an index of contents, it can be extremely fast at searching for words within a file
MFT is NTFS based, but we all should be using NTFS these days
