Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1

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

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...
