FileSearchEX is the no nonsense file search utility for Windows 7 and 8. It offers the simplified search interface like Windows XP yet in an updated and modern fashion. Unlike other search tools, FileSearchEX works well with limited account permissions.
FileSearchEX runs well in locked down computer configurations while still being easy to install by network administrators. Indeed, no installer is needed and admin rights are not required. No matter what software you have on your business systems, users will find it refreshing to have FileSearchEX's simplified search interface available to them.
Searching inside file contents, expanding network shares, and viewing image thumbnails round out the standard features. FileSearchEX is the Windows search tool replacement you've been looking for.
