  1. Can't type in search and IE after update


    Fresh install of Windows. Did the updates. After the last updates and a restart, now all of a sudden I can't type in the Search field anymore, and I also can't type in the address bar in Internet explorer.

    But I can type if I create a notepad, and I can type if I open the notepad inside. I can also type my password when my computer starts.

    So what gives? What can I do here?

    p.s I already did a restart. Didn't fix it.

    :)

    Hi Laxmi,



    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.



    I understand that you are facing issues with Windows 10. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

    The issue could occur if there is some system file is corrupt or due to some security software is conflicting to system funtionality.

    To assist you better, please provide the information:

    1. Are you getting any error message when try to type in search bar?

    2. Have you made any changes to the Computer prior to the issue?

    3. Have you installed any third party security software?

    Refer to the below methods and check if it helps.

    Method 1: I suggest you to temporarily disable the antivirus or uninstall third party security software and check if it helps.

    Disable Anti virus:

    NOTE: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it
    to install other software, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    If the issues still persist, refer to the below method.


    Method 2: I suggest you to perform the below methods and check if it helps.

    1. Open an Administrator CMD window. If you can’t find a way, use these steps:

    2. Press CTRL+Shift+ESC to open Task Manager.

    3. Click File > Run New Task.

    4. Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”.

    5. Type "CMD" without the quotes and hit on
    Enter Key.

    6. Type the following commands at the CMD prompt and hit onEnter Key:

    sfc /scannow

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

    7. If the above didn’t resolve the issues. Then perform the below methods.

    8. If the above commands both completed and show no remaining issues, run these commands:

    powershell



    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    9. Restart your Computer.
