Text string search tool

I need a program which can take multiple folders and search inside the files for a specific text string. I used to use Total Commander but it lacks the feature of choosing multiple folders inside the same folder. We have a mail archieving system which creates a folder every day called mailbackup **-**-*** **:** so i have for 4 months in the same directory and want to be able to chose for example all of februar month:
mailbackup 01:02:2009 01:29
mailbackup 02:02:2009 01:29
mailbackup 03:02:2009 01:29
etc.
Any suggestions or is there maybe a plugin for Total commander which can do it. Logparser is out of the question it would be to resource full on our live mailserver.
Thx Nichlas Holm Jørgensen

lauritz,

I have been using Actual Search and Replace for a number of years to do this type of search all the time. It works great for me. The Replace features are also exceptional, it's a great tool.

Also consider grep for Windows:

Or check out Cygwin it has many command line file manipulation utilities including grep
