    My UAC settings are configured to "Always notify when ... (highest setting) ". UAC gets triggered every time I start the program. Your program goes to where it needs elevation.

    -------------------------

    Change proposal:
    Can you modify the behavior of the program so that it can search on all drives on computer?
    Currently you have to select drive to where to search on. I have multiple drives (4) so I have to manually switch from drive to drive.

    Thx

    @josh

    great thinghy, works like a dream!
    have not been able to search files since
    norton utilities ff.exe gave me a bsod in w95,
    umpteen years ago.........
    used explorer, mostly, since...a pain in the old neck...

    as a constructive comment, i would like to add the
    following.

    -icon.
    some more contrast [ dark handle to the magnifying glass,]
    and non-transparent glass would be better.

    -search options.
    it took me about 15 minutes to find out that when you
    want to search on extension, as i nearly always do, you need to
    say no filter, and add the extension sec in the filename window.

    -using extensions in related groups, like *.doc &*.pdf does not
    work for me.
    one extension at a time.

    also i would like to be able to select a directory to search,
    instead of an entire drive.

    -so how about a small help-file for such questions?

    [ yes i know it is more work, and yes, i am almost ashamed to suggest
    it after your posting of the the first decent search thing in 16 years,
    but i hope you realize my only intention is to help you improve it further..]

    regards, & respects, nodnar.

    1. It can't find anything :dontgetit: no matter what I search- no items found.
    2. When it begins the searching (and moving to the second tab) + can't find anything, it goes back for half a second to the "File Searcher" tab, and returns to "Search Results" tab.
    3. When hovering the options in the first & second tab, you might want to change these-
    Start the search > Start searching
    Only files will be searched > Files searching will be included ["Only"? and if I want other things to be searched? :p)
    Only folders will be searched > Folders searching will be included [Same explanation as before ^]
    Disable the results icons, it will reduce drastically the memory use > Disable icons on the results tab (will reduce memory usage)
    Export the list for CSV file > Export the list to CSV file
    Stop all running tasks > Stop searching [unless you want it as it is now.. as you wish]
    Kbytes > KiloBytes
    4. Change the "Stop" icon on the second tab to X (not V).
    5. When clicking "Search on the results (bla bla)" + not writing ANYTHING + clicking on somewhere else (where is not button), make the bar to appear with "Search on the results (bla bla)" again.
    6. If windows is a 32 bit system, remove the "Program Files(x86)" entry.

    Thanks :)
