I am no expert on Windows, but I've had the experience that Windows
searches don't return things I know exist and I don't know whether I'm
misunderstanding the documentation. However, Windows XP at least has
as a legacy of DOS a debased -grep- command called -find-. You can get
to it by issuing a command prompt and then get a syntax diagram by

find /?
