This question already has an answer here:

Is there a tool on Windows 7 that offers what Spotlight offers on OS X? I mean a deep-fast search on everything that stands on local disks. I also mean : search on the content of those files. So the ability to find the files that contain a specified word or sentence.

Please explain: What features are you missing from Windows' search function? – slhck Mar 22 '13 at 10:39

You can find a list of Desktop Search Engines on Wikipedia. I am sure you'll find something in the list that fits your needs.

I use "Everything" from voidtools it is very fast and uses very little resources. It finds things on any of your NTFS partitions. It can use regular expressions or just standard wildcards.
