Desktop search engines

Can anybody recommend a desktop search engine (preferably free) that will locate Lotus WordPro (.lwp) files? I've done a search on Google and there seems to be any number of desktop searchers but I can't find one that will work with WordPro. Any advice gratefully received.

have you tried downloading Googles desktop search?

I know it's the evil Microsoft, but I like its desktop search tool better than either Google or Copernic. I find it fast and accurate.

I agree with Kate B

I have looked at the suggested desktop searchers but it seems they don't handle WordPro. I'm searching for one that does.

Do you search for *.lwp with windows search?

I am looking for a search engine that will search for key words within all the .lwp documents on my computer, in the same way that they will do with text and Word documents.

Thanks terryf. I'll give Google a whirl.
