C:\) for a certain character string (for example
obscure.dll) in Windows 7? For instance, Start Menu search does not find files in

I'm looking for a method that utilizes the built-in search of Win7, without installing Cygwin or other major system-level changes, and without using incredibly slow command line tools. I want to know aht incantation will search all filenames in a specified directory.

MultiDoc.py. My search returned no results. Why?
