  1. Cortana quit working after most recent Windows update.


    Love Cortana but it quit working after the most recent Windows update I believe. The app does not appear on the Task Bar. However, changing 'Regedit' to allow Cortana and changing the zero to #1 adds the app to the Task bar. But an error message continues to state that Cortana is not Active and that I need the Administrators permission even though I am the Administrator. A restart removes Cortana from the Task Bar and changes the Registry back as well. Sure would appreciate some help with this matter. Thanks,

    :)

  2. Cortana is no longer working

    Windows 10 installed without difficulty and Cortana worked well. However, following a recent automatic update, Cortana is quite unresponsive. I have gone through the suggested language etc routine but to no avail. Any ideas ?
