As the others have said ZTree does not do Regular Expressions, they have been requested a few times over the years.

The /b switch of findstr.exe does beginning of string
i.e. something like this

findstr /m /b /l "LLX" d:\dir\*.*

findstr does do basic Regular Expressions, but if you need what you expect from *nix RE's then do a search for the GnuWin32 or cygwin tools for windows.
