Sounds Like You've Already Got Your Opinion..

...and that's all that matters, isn't it? "What's best" is whatever you think is best. You have a good list of other options and I'm guessing you've tried them all. Since each search engine finds something a little differently and each user searches for different types of items, it's normal that each user may have a different preference. In my case, I use Google almost exclusively and because it doesn't load extra advertisements and such, it's my homepage. Once in a while, I use dogpile because it combines a number of search engines at once.

Use the one you like.

Hope this helps.

Most engines comeup with the same results. Its just the interface that matters. Few ads, fast and easy to adjust settings for searching. Thats why I like google. Its just so clean looking.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
