Finding Text in Files Using Windows Search

I was growing increasingly frustrated at not being able to search for text using Windows XP search to search within .ASP or .PRG files. (But Visual Foxpro Filer works great!) Searching for text in specific files is a common task a programmer needs to perform from time to time. I had no idea why it wasn't working until a co-worker sent me this link today:

I normally don't use registry "hacks" like this, but in this case I think it may be worth it. Hope this helps another frustrated Windows developer out there.
