Microsoft Indexing Service

Microsoft has putted a great feature in Windows 2000 and Windows XP although it is undocumented but it will boost the searching of files and folders.
I don't know why they didn't documented it as it is a nice feature and it should be enabled.

To enable Indexing Service, do the following steps :
(These steps are from Windows XP. Windows 2000 will also have similar enabling)

1. Start Search from the start menu.
2. Click on preference.
3. Enable Indexing Service.
4. Now leave your PC idle for few hours as Indexing Service will build its database, this step is not important but it is recommended as without the database you will not get the full potential.
If you don't have time then don't worry because Indexing Service, if started, will itself build the database whenever your PC will be idle for long.

So now you will be able to search faster without the help of any additional tools.
