You don't say what operating system you are using but in windows XP all you have to do is go to the Start button on the Taskbar or the toolbar on any window you have opened and choose Search. Select the All files and folders
option, then in the second search box, the one titled A word or phrase in the file
enter a word or phrase that you think might be unique to the file you are looking for.
Choose the drive you want to search in from the Look in:
menu and hit the search button. windows will find the file you are looking for if it is on the drive you are searching.
You might want to check the search options below the Look in menu for other options which may help you find this file. For example: if the file you are looking for stored inside a hidden folder you must click the third option More Advanced Options
and put a check mark in the Search hidden Files And Folders
box or Windows will not look for your file inside of them.
I don't know of any programs that can allow you to do a high speed preview of word documents but here is an option that Word has that allows you have a preview image of your file that you can see in the detail box of your window when you right click a word file or if you have your folder options set to the Thumbnails option.http://wordprocessing.about.com/library/Wo...reviewimage.htm
