Is there a way to add advanced options when doing a search on Windows 7? for example how to exclude certain folder, or exclude certain file types. Any software that could help with this sort of advanced search? or maybe there are search options that I'm not aware of.

Not sure if you can ADD extra options but if you're looking for a separate search tool here's a thread that talks about alternative search programs:

What's a good alternative to Windows' "Search for Files and Folders"?
