Question Complicated file search - Help!!

I need to find some particular files in a folder in windows.

Window's file search doesn't seem to be able to do the type of search I need.

I need to look for files with the name:

UWS*MetaData.xml
That don't contain the word handler within the file.

With windows I can find files that contain a certain word but not those that don't contain it.

Any ideas on other search applications I can use?

I use Inforapid Search and Replace, which you can find at the following web address.

http://www.inforapid.de/html/searchreplace.htm

This can (please see the examples in the programme) do the type of searches you are after.

I've managed to use that to get the list I needed.
