I just searched the "other antivirus" forum for "avira free ads" because I wanted to find the threads here about the ad splash screen when updating. So, why would the search engine say this: "The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search: ads" Search, without that word included, found a ton of threads. I was trying to help someone on another forum and the answer is in one or more of the Avira free threads about the ads during updating. Why would search reject that word? It is not "and" "but" or some other non-relevant word. I didn't search for "avira splash screen" because there are more than one splash screen...one on boot and an ad one during updating the free version. Other times I have searched here search has found what I wanted and I have never gotten that message before. Also, why when I click on "search" in a forum does the small search window immediately default to a full page where I have to manually check what forum I want searched? I just tried other search terms and I can't find any of the threads. Either I am a terrible searcher or search here isn't very good.
