I have a user who need to be able to search the contents of a folder using Windows XP search but she needs to be able to search by "A word or phrase in the file:".  All of the files are PDF documents and I have confirmed she has Read & Execute permissions to the files.  

The user is running Windows XP SP3 and Adobe Reader 9.3, the files server is Windows 2003. I search using the same criteria and find the files but I am also an admin.

Any idea's if there are additional permissions required to search based on file content?
