Microsoft Filter Pack: search document contents in Windows

Those of you who use the search bar in Vista or Windows Search in XP know the strength of powerful searching from the command line.  You may even have wished that you could search for text within your Office 2007 documents to find that nugget of information you know exists.  If that describes you then go get the Microsoft Filter Pack which allows document content searching in Vista and XP.  There are full instructions for getting this functionality at the Microsoft download site.
