newbie question; very slow search

Hello, Jon; thanks very much for FileSeek. I just now got it and wonder if I am using it wrong. I use Windows 7 and in my D drive, have an .rtf file containing the words 'same browser problems as the previous version' and searched for that. FileSeek was stuck 10 minutes at "1019 files searched" and now seems stuck at 1027 searched. The STOP button is "active" so it does appear to be running. Both times it appears to be in a movie (.MOD) file. I'll attach pictures in case that helps.
Thanks again.

Are those MOD files large? If so, try excluding them by specifying *.mod in the "exclude files" box. If you know that the text you are looking for is in an RTF file, try using *.rtf in the include files box, instead of *.* (for everything).

Yes, Jon, they are very large files. Once it got through them, FileSeek speeded up a LOT and found the phrase. Windows 7 did *not* find it; it came up with a long list of files which DID NOT even include that phrase; odd.

THANKS again. I have linked to your site on my "Favorite Freeware" pages; item #90.

I'm glad to hear you got it working as expected, and that it is working well for you. Enjoy, and Happy New Year!
