One great feature in Windows XP was search command for finding file paths or locations for a desired file.  One of the bad features of Windows Vista and 7 is that the search feature works poorly compared how it worked in Windows XP.  
 
One of the forum tabs is Downloads, and one of the items listed is Everything, the search engine for finding paths for files on ones computer.  Does installing this program make any major changes to the computer system?  Does it affect how a user would normally use the way of searching through the Start Menu's Run... field?  Any difficulties or disadvantages experienced when installing or using this Everything search engine on their computer?

Edit: Topic moved from Windows Vista to the more appropriate forum.~ Animal

I have been using Search Everything (http://www.voidtools.com/) for years and it is an outstanding utility. It makes no changes to anything, it's simply an 3rd party search tool that returns instantaneous results.

Allan is correct about Everything Search. I also have been using it for years with no problems.
Enter your search term and a list of the results will be given.
You can then click on an entry to open up the folder the entry is in.

I also use it to find leftover folders and files when I uninstall a program by highlighting the entry in the results, right clicking and choosing delete.

Ditto.  It's light on resources and searches are lightning fast.
