Windows 7: Is there a research search engine?

Is there a research search engine?

I feel like I am regressing back into the stone age these past few weeks concerning google searches. I'm trying to do some research and I get products or local businesses. I use to click discussions to filter this out but I run into the almighty useless google groups discussions instead of finding new interesting forums that may be out there. Even adding -groups.google.com when searching discussions doesn't remove those results.

Anyone know of a search engine that is for research? I dont want a closed network that doesnt include everyday peoples input or undocumented/verified info which is why I think forums are great. Sites like wikipedia is great for factual information or summeries but not sharing experiences and learning from each other. So I'm looking for a search engine that excludes results of people trying to make a living. Just research. Does one exist?

Edit: Alright getting better but open to suggestions. In case anyone want to know this seems to have removed google discussion results and can remove specific websites. Maybe a firefox addon can automatically filter out websites like facebook forums and google groups. I'd be set.

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

This is not a problem now. I just want to put it on record for the non-believers. Some time ago - maybe a year or so, someone posted online that she could not bring up Wikipedia when she did searches. No one believed her. Everyone kept saying she was doing something wrong. News! It...
