File viewer for large files in Delphi XE8

I have Delphi XE8 and I am trying to view large text files. In Delphi 7, there was a component called, I believe TFileView, which performed such a function.

Are there any suggestions as to how to view large text files and mark "found" (SelStart, SelSelLength) words in a different colour?

I tried using TRichEdit, but it is extremely slow.

Thank you. :-)

Thank you. But that is a huge editor. I looked at the documentation and I could not find anything about it being good with huge files.

 I am looking for something that does readonly and is nifty.

Total Commander seems to be a stand-alone editor. I am looking for some component to put in a program I am developing.

I am already using EditPad Pro 7 for doing that type of thing.

Thanks for the tip anyway. :-)
