Eksample:

Find a file with the included name "teen" on c:

I would like to make a script than find pron :( is that possible? :ph34r:

have a look at the example script in "My Autoit Stuff" page called http://www.autoitscript.com/fileman/users/jdeb/scriptlets/findfiles.au3... that should help you on your way... :lol:

If you want to be extra sure you can decide to hash with MD5 algorith the found files and check what is exatly the one you need.

md5.exe

Also if you want a easier script you can check the Larry script, but 'as is' it only find

s all folders. You have to mod it a little, it should not be a problem.

Check Larry script here

It is just a feeling. Your way to script is... hard to read.

Of course you can't understand since anyone can understand his creations. But it seem so.

About md5... welll I guess I missed the point of the word 'teen' and I thought that Wb-freekill has to find a specific file. Knowing its md5 would be sure and surer to find the right file in any system.
