What is Everything?  (from voidtools)

Everything is a search engine for Windows that replaces the normal Windows search with a much faster one. Unlike Windows search, Everything initially displays every file and folder on your computer. You can type in a search filter to limit what files and folders are displayed. Everything only uses file and folder names...  Read more


Everything is a software program developed by voidtools. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The programs's main executable is Everything.exe and has been seen to consume an average CPU of less than one percent, and utilizes about 20.89 MB of memory. It also includes a system tray icon that is displayed in the notifications area while the program is running. The setup package generally installs about 24 files and is usually about 4.21 MB (4,412,529 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 45% of users of Everything come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.

small prg to find out files in your computer by the file name, the fastest probably, it is helpful if you know the file name or a part of it my only problem was to run it under other accounts which has no admin rights
