Not sure which OS you are using. But here is a desktop search tool I have seen recommended before. http://www.copernic.com/en/products/desktop-search/

Also good tool is the VistaGlance, very handy. I'm using it from march 06, it's free.
So there is a quote from official site:

VistaGlance is a revolutionary program with elements of artificial intelligence that gives you a wonderful ability to get documents you want or run programs you need within several seconds since you firstly think about them. VistaGlance utilizes results of original research in computer human interaction and human perception to increase efficiency of documents-related work up to 30 percents.

I for one am very leery about Google Desktop.

The EFF, for one, is adamant users shouldn't trust Google with the contents of their personal computers.

"Unless you configure Google Desktop very carefully, and few people will, Google will have copies of your tax returns, love letters, business records, financial and medical files, and whatever other text-based documents the desktop software can index," EFF Staff Attorney Kevin Bankston said. "The government could then demand these personal files with only a subpoena rather than the search warrant it would need to seize the same things from your home or business, and in many cases you wouldn't even be notified in time to challenge it."

Yes, I don't want to use GDS, because of privacy safety.
Next... When I'd downloaded and installed Copernic and VistaGlance, I'd tried them one after another, Impressions - Copernic is a very powerful program, but comes, in my opinion, with very overloaded interface. So the VistaGlance is more convenient and easy to use in combination with good efficiency. Think I'll be using it further.
