Decent UI grep, has .ini, portable, straight (no .NET dependencies). The only little quibble is that you have to invoke it with /portable or a long name to get the local .ini (could have just checked the name and used it if found) which makes it clumsy on a USB drive. For the folks complaining that this or that "grep" "can't search PDF-s" - no one can. PDF-s are compressed part-wise => you need substantial code to unpack, then parse and then either, convert to text and stream it through a grep engine or write a PDF crawler.
