Need File text Search-Sort Tool

#1
Looking for a simple way to do this. I have not programmed in quite a while and don't have the time to learn again with the new toolsets.

Ground rules:
1) Automatic - I hand it a list of files and it does a text search on several strings with logicals and saves the applicable files to a new directory.

IF string1 and not string2 etc... save to "directory"

2) Already available within Windows environment, though an ideal GNU utility would be acceptable.

I know I can do this with basic scripting but it sounds like work (vbasic and I never got along).

Any other ideas?

I get about 50-100 of these files in a zip every week and no longer have time to parse them manually.
