I have XP on my 2 pcs and i have Vista on my laptop. I like xp better than vista but the search app on Vista is far superior to the search app on XP is there an add on to XP i can download from any where to make it the same search engine? Or does vista use a different filing system?

I actually found the Search facility in Vista to be so awful that I instead used Everything Search which is extremely fast. I now use this in Windows 7 and XP, although it only works with an NTFS drive so if XP is in a FAT32 partition it's no use.
