In windows XP I know this option but where it is on Windows 7 ?
But I am looking for a third party application in order to be more faster than windows search.

Windows 7 does this on its own. If you dont see the document yet, it probally hasn't been indexed yet. I guess you could turn off Windows indexing and download Google Desktop. Their indexing works better, but is a resource hog at first.
