    Hi everybody!

    I was wondering if anybody has a copy of Windows Search 3.01 for Win XP. Microsoft has removed that download from their Website and even Internet Archive does't seem to have a copy….

    Does anybody have it ?

    Do you mean this completely deletes the default search program of XP and replaces it?

    Now I have got it. I never knew about 'windows search' until I read about it here in this thread. If search companion is good enough for you, it is more than good enough for me too. I'll give 'windows search' a miss. Thank you for clarifying this :)

    I use Ultrasearch.

    https://www.jam-software.com/ultrasearch/

    It is FAST! However it only sees ATA (ide) & SATA connected drives. Still have to use 'whatever you use' for usb connected memory.
    Its free & for 32 or 64 bit machines.
