If you have access just map the drives and do "dir /s filename*.*" or is there a reason that won't work?

to improve the Win 7 searcher you can do some registry editing.  have a read here:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2268596

also a library tool here, that could be used to improve searching - http://zornsoftware.talsit.info/

This program is good, http://www.sowsoft.com/search.htm, but requires $30 for the full version.  Copernic also have an office & corporate version which also searches network drives very quickly - http://www.copernic.com/en/products/desktop-search/ .
