Search for files created in the last few minutes.

I am using WindowsXP. When using the Windows Explorer (the file manager), I want to perform a search to find any file modified or created in the last 10 minutes or so.  This is so I can find any log files that may have been created during an installation or some other operation.  If I use the Search utility that comes with the file manager, it only gives me a choice of dates, not the times.

How could I perform such a search?  Is there a batch file or something I could make to do this?

You could pick use the windows explorer to search for files modified today, and then sort the results by clicking the column header.  Files modified in the last few minutes are at the top.
