Default Windows 7 SP1 Deleted Prime95???

I have discovered the problem. SP1 changed how my searches were being performed (they are now case sensitive for some reason).

Interestingly, this is fixed once you have searched for the item using the correct case once. After that, it is no longer case sensitive. I have tried with several other files. Weird!

XP has a selection box for case sensitivity hidden behind "More advanced options" and requires an extra click to open. I would expect that 7 will have a similar option. But perhaps it has been buried deeper behind multiple clicks in the interests of making things less more "user-friendly"?

Who knows? I'm just very relieved to know that it did not delete Prime95 and thus all my progress on my current LL tests.
