API Function

P: n/a
Hello,

I'm searching for an API-Function to find files. I would
like to find files with a keyword. It's like a search how
it is in Windows explorer. Right mouse-click above a
folder -> Search -> Searching in file also.

For example I would like to find all files which contains
the string "weather" (all Worddocs, Excel, ...)

I think there should be an function or how does it
Microsoft?

If there is a function, I would like to implement this in
vb.net.

Thanx for your help
