All of the keywords you type must have 4 or more characters. For example 'virus' has 5 characters, 'test' has 4 characters etc.
If you type a word that has less than 4 characters it won't find anything.

Yeah, that's a feature about our Search, that I don't care for.
There are a lot of computer acronyms that are 3 letters, or less, which pretty much renders the Search feature, useless.
If you have a question that can't be answered by doing a Search, then just ask it.

We're more concerned with you getting the help you need, than asking a question that's already been asked.
Trying to help our members, solve their problems, is our primary concern.

Maybe I am to old for this site

You're only as old, as you feel. :thumbsup:

You're quite welcome, not_anyone.
Thankfully, you're never too old to learn, otherwise, I'd be in serious trouble. :thumbsup:

6 = less than 4 letters :thumbsup:

One or all of your search keywords were below 4 characters or you searched for words which are not allowed, such as 'html', 'img', etc, please go back and increase the length of these search keywords or choose different keywords.


Try using, adobe crashes internet explorer6, adobe crashes internet explorer, or adobe+internet explorer+crashes.
