Windows 7 - How can I search for all file containing a specific phrase

In windows XP I could search my whole computer or a directory for files containing a specific phrase. I can search for parts of file names in Windows 7, but I do not find a way to look in files for phrases.

Please give me an indication where to look if it is possible.

The example I sent looked for actual words or phases inside the files.

but this only gives me a listing of types of files.
What I need is to find files with any names, containing a specific phrase like "conditions around our country".
There is such a file on my computer, but I do not know where and i do not know it's name. I need to find it.
If I am not mistaking all you should have to do in Windows 7 all you have to do is open the ribbon or start as most people know it and just type the phrase. search
