CSearcher is a free, fast non-indexing search utility for Microsoft Windows OS.
When searching a computer for folders or files, the Windows Explorer solution, which is part of the Windows operating system, is slow, uses a lot of RAM, and relies on the computer running all the time in the background to create a master file index. If a file has not been indexed, the Windows Explorer search may not find it.
CSearcher does not use any indexing. It performs a direct search process instead. It is an advanced search tool, which has all the Windows Explorer search capabilities, plus additional search features (exclude patterns, date and size options, MD5 calculator, search history, filter results etc.) that are very useful. Users can customize search efforts in many ways to quickly narrow down the search to find what they are looking for.
