Windows 7 (and Vista) include a search system that can search not just file names, but the contents of files. Microsoft Office documents are all supported by default, however PDF files are not. Adobe provide a plugin which is included with Adobe Reader 9 (and newer) which enables this functionality. However a 64bit plugin is not included. Adobe now provide version 9 of their iFilter for x64 64bit systems which is freely downloadable
