    Good File Search Program?

    Hello,

    Does anyone know of a program that will let me search all files (including binaries) within a given directory for a string? Coming up with a good Google term that expresses the above is tricky, so I'm going to pick your brains instead.

    There's gotta be a well-known one...

    EDIT: Forgot to say it's for Windows.
