  1. Windows 10 search and applications not working


    Hello, I've been experiencing issues with my search bar and some other things recently.

    Whenever I click on my search bar, it flickers really fast a couple times and then doesn't open. If I restart my PC it fixes itself temporarily but any time I restart mu PC the problem comes back a few hours later after my PC is on for that amount of time. This is very inconvenient for me as I cannot open any software's not on my taskbar. Even programs on my taskbar don't work because of this such as my Minecraft launcher, Razer synapse, occasionally OBS studio, and sometimes even Discord. If I click on Cortana or the Windows logo and try to click one of the options shown on the overlay they don't work and just close the overlay. The same problem I just stated applies to settings and control panel. I have tried many fixes on the internet, and there are not many, but I have tried deleting junk files, checking my RAM in bios just in case, and I even tried reinstalling windows but absolutely nothing works. Thank you.

    :)

  2. Metro 2033 fails to work on windows 10!

    I don't recall you mentioning any trouble shooting steps attempted though. At the very least, doing a quick search and checking threads like this very well may have solved it for you. It's listed as compatible on MS' list of games that work with W10 for a reason, because many if not most are able to get it running on W10. At least some level of workaround may be required, but some got it running without doing anything.

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    DTS supported natively by Windows 8/8.1 and it should work on windows 10 too just DDL require to unlock your driver .

    Upgrading to Windows 10 from windows 7 and losing internet connection

    When trying to search for a driver on that motherboard, it doesn't say Windows 10 on it. My suggestion would be to get a NIC card of some sort that is known to work with the OS (most).
