  1. Question about searchapp.exe.


    I had a problem with the window search bar after updating on 14th of September and tried to do couple of things to fix it.

    I realized that searchUI.exe is missing in my system and tried to get it. Instead I see searchapp.exe and the search bar works.

    Is this a valid exe. file and okay to use? I am concerned about virus.

    Thank you.

    From Alex Minchul Kwon.
