Filter Files With Unknown Extensions For XP

The fact that Windows XP Find in Files only searches files with known file extensions drives me crazy because it skips, among other things, .cs  files. Every time I set up a new system, I have to re-figure out how to fix this. To facilitate that, I put together a .reg file that will search all unknown file extensions as text files. Enjoy.
