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 https://sift-tool.org/info.html
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 http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/ and use STRINGS from sysinternals https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897439.aspx

Windows should have Findstr...at least in Windows 7 (I believe Win10)

Otherwise there is Sysinternal Strings may be of interest

... or even AstroGrep - File Searching Utility (grep) http://sourceforge.net/projects/astrogrep/
