Finding all global/static variables

I am modifying a large (400,000 lines) C++ application developed in VC++ 6.0.  I need to remove all global variables and static variables so that the application can become thread-safe.

Does anyone know of a way to identify the globals and statics within my source code?  The first step in replacing these (or wrapping them with thread-safe mechanisms) is to know how many and where they are.

You can see all global variables in the Class View, Globals folder.
To find all static variables just make a search for the static word.
