I am trying to create training for Windows Server Tools. It is a bit frustrating because many tools have no authoritative reference. Find is one of these orphans. My list of tools includes Grep and Qgrep as well. I had thought to exclude the grep family as these seem to be redundant. But now I am wondering if Find is is the one I should drop. I would have users combine Find, grep, or Qgrep with such tools as sc, sclist, and others to filter output.

If anyone has any advice about which to use, I would love to hear from them.

And seriously, what is the deal with Find.exe as a virus? I found a virus alert, on this site (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/find.exe-10192.html), describing Find.exe as such. Did someone create a virus that takes on this file name?
