The guy above just mentioned AltaVista. Man I had completely forgotten about that. I used that in the 90's. My favorite when I first started computing in the 90's was Web Crawler. I think I liked it because of the picture of the Spider and his Web. I just went to Web Crawler for the first time in 15 years and the picture of the Spider is gone. I could never use that search engine now. :>) == By the way, in answer to your poll Google...............

Tried Bing didn't like it at all.

Google by default as others are worse. Google isn't best just more tolerable.
Turn off/delete 90% of the junk it wants to run.

Getting almost as bad as Adobe Reader or HP Imaging software.
Download everything but the kitchen sink.

I use Google for the simple reason that I get better results when searching for solutions to software issues, Bing tends to trim the answers off of forum posts.

Search engines are like web-browsers, every ones choice is the best and they will tell you why you should be using it instead of what you prefer to use.

Search Engine ?
Hello, Is there a free, or inexpensive, search engine that will search the text in the documents in all my files, and not just by file name ? In other words, literally searching every text word on PC, wherever it might be, looking for a match. Thanks, Bob

Windows 7 search engine
First post here. I am really surprised not to see more discussion of this, and I have not found any sort of acceptable alternative since starting with Windows 7 in March of 2011 I simply do not understand the Windows 7 search engine capabilities. Perhaps the best way to highlight this is with...
