    XP handles zip files as compressed folders. You can use the ordinary search function of windows explorer to search through zip files, down to the deepest core of its folder sructure.
    If your question, in fact, is whether XP can search a zip file inside another zip file, well, no. I found some progs on the net which might be capable of such a feat, at least they seem promising. Take a look at
