  1. KB3093266 vs. Search


    Update was successfully installed on two computers yesterday, but one of them has a serious error with Search. Earlier today, when I found that Search was again not working, which was the case until the previous Windows update as I recall, I restarted the computer; this was the second restart since the KB3093266 install, the first to fix what appeared to be a stuck powercfg -requests entry keeping the machine from sleeping. (I don't know if Search was working before that restart, as I don't know if I had even tried it after the update.)

    Search worked after this morning's restart, but after the computer went to sleep after its scheduled two-hour non-use interval, Search is once again not working. Other than the use of my ten-pound sledge hammer or my borrowing the Jaws of Life from my former fire department, any suggestions, ideas, "whatevers" to solve this problem?

    Later: I have stopped and restarted the Windows Search service; I have rebuilt the Search Index through Control Panel Indexing Options; I have run the Control Panel Troubleshooting option for Search. None of those items have restored Search to a working state/

    :)

  2. KB3093266 vs. Search

    Kiran: Thank you for your prompt reply. I had already done Steps 1 and some other steps, but not all of Step 2. However, other than that I do not use Cortana, I have found no other problems, and running Parts 1-3 of Step 2 earlier did not report anything
    amiss.

    Parts 4-6 of Step 2 now having been done and the machine again restarted, I will now have to wait to see if that fixed the problem. If not, then I will remove KB 3093266, which will, of course, require more waiting to see what transpires.

    I will update this when I have any further information.

    Oh dear: Just before submitting this, I checked, and found that Search had worked for perhaps all of ten minutes, and has once again failed! I shall remove KB3093266, and see if that restores Search.

  3. KB3093266 vs. Search

    Search was still working when I woke the computer at 0530 today; five minutes later, it had failed again.

    This is ridiculous, absurd, annoying, wrong, etc.

    I wonder if Kiran will rejoin this thread; if not, it will be at least the third time that I have received a reply from someone identified as a Microsoft Support Engineer who, after I supply the information requested by one such person has never responded
    to my input.

    This is both weird and annoying: I removed KB3093266. which restored Search for several days, then reinstalled the KB; Search then worked for approximately twenty-three hours, whereupon Search failed perhaps five minutes after I had awakened the computer this morning.

    No such problem with our other computer.
