You should give windows find a try at _emacs

3.5 Where do I put my init file?

On Windows, the .emacs file may be called _emacs for backward
compatibility with DOS and FAT filesystems where filenames could not
start with a dot. Some users prefer to continue using such a name,
because Explorer cannot create a file with a name starting with a dot,
even though the filesystem and most other programs can handle it. In
Emacs 22 and later, the init file may also be called
.emacs.d/init.el. Many of the other files that are created by lisp
packages are now stored in the .emacs.d directory too, so this keeps
all your Emacs related files in one place.

All the files mentioned above should go in your HOME directory. The
HOME directory is determined by following the steps below:

   1. If the environment variable HOME is set, use the directory it
   2. If the registry entry HKCU\SOFTWARE\GNU\Emacs\HOME is set, use
   the directory it indicates.
   3. If the registry entry HKLM\SOFTWARE\GNU\Emacs\HOME is set, use
   the directory it indicates. Not recommended, as it results in users
   sharing the same HOME directory.
   4. If C:\.emacs exists, then use C:/. This is for backward
   compatibility, as previous versions defaulted to C:/ if HOME was
   not set.
   5. Use the user's AppData directory, usually a directory called
   Application Data under the user's profile directory, the location
   of which varies according to Windows version and whether the
   computer is part of a domain. 

Within Emacs, <~> at the beginning of a file name is expanded to your
HOME directory, so you can always find your .emacs file with C-x C-f
