Searching the content off ALL files with Windows 2003 standard search

If you try to find files containing a specific string, the search of Windows 2003 doesn't look in all filetypes. Just try to search for a <Title>-tag in HTML-files...

Good thing there's a quick solution to this:
- Open RegEdit
- Find the key HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\ContentIndex
- Set the DWORD-value of FilterFilesWithUnknownExtensions to 1 (default = 0)

Searching will be slower, but at least you'll get some results!

This should work for Windows XP also.
