  1. I can't type in windows search


    Ok so just today I tried booting up my computer and got a blue screen, and had to try to repair it myself. After trying a system restore, it didnt work, but seemingly what did work was undoing an update. I'm back into my computer, but I cant type in the windows search on my taskbar, nor the search in the upper corner of file explorer.

    :)

    IE11 Google Toolbar no auto search suggestions, no search history?

    Since the last Win 10 update my Google Toolbar won't list any search suggestions as I type and there is no search history listed. The Google tool bar will allow a search, but after a few searches no search history shows and no "clear search" button is listed either.

    I have turnd on "Suggest searches as you type", and "store search histroy on my computer" in the Google Toolbar options.

    Any suggestions to fix this?

    Click the start button, in the search box type in 'windows updates', click on 'windows update'
    in the search results list, in the left side of the windows update window click 'change settings'
