@cjrmail2k and @jackieman; I used googledesktop but it ate my resources and left my XP slow, I will try Jarrod's, thanks.

Yes it slows it down while it indexes but after that it is great. I use it daily. Also great for searching for e-mails in Lotus notes.

My PC was unresponsive for a couple of hours after the install as it indexed...
