    Search Bar in explorer and task bar not working

    Hi,

    The Search Bar in explorer and task bar not working, I've tried every possible solution I could find online and nothing works, any suggestions?

    Even after the latest update on 15/07/20 the issue was still not resolved, I have been having this issue on and off after updates have been installed.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as I use the search bar a lot in my job.
