I found myself searching my own blog for these three things today to set up another machine for development. Here they are so *I* can find them.

Just wanted to let you know there is a much better search tool than the one built into windows. It will search through all files for text, and will allow you to use RegEx too!
Its called AgentRansack its free and you might just end up adding it to your 'tools' list!

Find text in text files??? A registry change? I'll be ... I wrote a patware to do the search! Well, at least mine can do regex searches !

Hey, do you know what's the registry key to modify to get the "file search" automatically instead of the "what do you want to search for" ?

I wasn't getting an "Install" option in Explorer. I spent some time googling to figure out the following one-line batch file.

%SystemRoot%\System32\rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %~f1
