Not necessarily if you work the options.
An alternative to your solution is to install Explorer Plus (aka PowerDesk)
which is a very good file manager that Microsoft really should have bought
and used. It has a Fast Find function and I just it to find "Griffith" in
all of my C: drive that VISTA uses. It's churning away and has found the
name inside a bunch of files -- lex, efg, db, dic, dat, ini, htm.....
If I could think of some text inside an exe file I'd try that too.
You can even set it to show the text inside the file it locates and if there
are multiple references it will list each one with some initial key wording.
