  2. Cortana search in the registry

    In the registry Software\Microsoft\Windows search\ScopeChangeNotification\S-1-5-21-1580305360 --1265286851-887726884=1000\Mirosoft.Windows.Cortana_swsn1h27xyewy\DE58CDD6..... refers to 2 lines that are incorrect and because of these the backup will not complete.
    I tried to delete these lines by running as administrator and was not allowed to change permissions and was told that can't be done on this computer. Running Window 10 Home.

    I tried a registry cleaner supposed to be the best but it could not locate these error keys. I was told that I needed to do a clean install and reload all my software ( about 1 days work). Can anyone help???

    Cortana registry setting?

    Hello Don, *Smile

    Cortana has multiple locations in the registry for its settings.

    If you like, look under "C" in the tutorial index below for the "Cortana" tutorials. Most of them include a registry option that may help.

  5. So it doesn't actually have a CENTRAL/MAIN location in the registry?

    Not for all of its settings.

    That is because it is so heavily tied into the OS, which was originally what they tried with the extra Microsoft Search that was released around the time that 7 was released.

    Cotana has to stay enabled or you will break the OS. If you disable thr settings in System Settings and in Cortana, it will stop looking at what you are doing and reporting neutral information on what software that you are using, so that Microsoft's Software Engineers and third party software manufacturers can know how Widows is being used and if there are any incompatiblty issues.

  8. Cortana registry setting?

    I am actually having a problem with Cortana missing/Not showing up on my PC at all. I have Cortana not disabled in the registry, but it's not working.

    What Cortana registry settings would have to do with Cortana exist on my PC but it's somehow disabled or corrupted other than these ones?

    I am trying to find the corrupted Cortana registry setting that would make it no longer showing up on my computer.

    Did you do anything previously to disable or uninstall Cortana?
    Brink, Apr 1, 2017
  10. I didn't, it's just disappeared somehow mysteriously.

    If this just recently happened, then you might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before Cortana went awol may help restore it.

  12. Unfortunately this is not recent, but several months I no longer have a system restore for when it's working.
