Searching inside docs stored on a USB drive

USB drive search: I need a Google Desktop Search-like application to index (and search inside) MS Word documents stored on a portable USB drive. The catch is that I don't have administrator rights on my work machine, so this program can't be installed on the computer itself: it has to go solely on the USB drive. Help?

Thanks in advance for your help.

To clarify, because it's not obvious from their website, but you can customize the setup so that it installs onto the thumbdrive, and not on the desktop. I called and asked them about it because I had your same requirements.

So far, that seems to be working. Thanks luser!
