I have never much liked Windows search. In fact, I created my own regex search utility so I could avoid using it. The thing that really annoys me is that it ignores some file types. You can fix that in a round about way, but it's way too dumbed down for my taste. I guess they just assume users would get overwhelmed with all those fancy looking settings.
