Create a reliable backup. Make sure you always have dependable copies of your data so you can restore your entire system or individual files.

I'm on windows XP and Wingrep works very well.  Maybe Windows 10 security doesn't like it.  Unfortunately, I don't think it is still being developed.

There is a new grep program I'm growing fond of, but isn't quite as robust yet, called sift.exe
I also use Cygwin on most of my computers, so I use the same grep and strings as linux. otherwise have a look at Unix-tools and use STRINGS from sysinternals

Windows should have least in Windows 7 (I believe Win10)
Otherwise there is Sysinternal Strings may be of interest
... or even AstroGrep - File Searching Utility (grep)
