Latly, there have been disputes over what kinda search to use. Aol and yahoo turn people in, and google is racist, so who? I have found Ask.com ( link to www.ask.com. it is also free, and protects your identity. as i write this, it is currently down, but should be back up soon.
I also found a nifty 3D animation tool known as anim8or. it is free, full of features, and can be downloaded here: link to www.anim8or.com. it only does stick dudes and is really basic, but is VERY ammusing. I made an animation i call "DONT MESS WITH THE LITTLE GUY!!!".. very funny. anyhoo, i hope you found this usefull, and post any questions or comments.
p.s. if you have zonealarm security suite, you will have to shut it down to download anything. when your done, turn it back on and run a virus/spyware check. it will probably find minor spyware (tracking cookie or adware) but it should delet it for you.
