  1. Search menu extremely slow/not working


    I've removed this incredibly annoying but seemingly non-threatening virus from my laptop, but now when I search for files or applications from the Search menu (Start + S) it shows the loading dots but doesn't show anything. Before the virus, it would almost instantly find files. This is annoying, since I deleted most shortcuts and whatnot on my desktop and relocated the more important ones to my RocketDock.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Update KB4033637

    I hate updates. After this one neither my wifi or start menu works. My start menu shows up but I can't interact with it. No search bar. Extremely slow. After uninstalling these problems went away. Really; if an update breaks the START MENU please don't
    publish it.
