     My coding actually does several things. The main thing is that it can search an entire Drive and all of its Directories for a file you specify and at the end of the search display the results of it. Or you can do the same thing but this time look for any file with an extention you specify. I made this search for the file using API but I left a function in there you can edit to search for the files without API but it's a little slower and not recommended. This Screen Shot can pretty much explain it all...

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
