    Windows 10 search bar doesn't work


    I temporarily changed paging file size from system managed size to custom and since then Windows search bar doesn't show any results when I input text. I set it back to system managed, but the problem persists.

    I tried the commonly suggested solutions like rebuilding indexing but with no success. Any ideas on how to solve this?

    I have the latest updates.

    :)

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.


    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:

    Does it mean my HDD is useless?

    Windows-10 update KB4058043: Search bar doesn't work after update

    After the most recent Store reliability update (KB4058043), I have the exact same problems as described in a year-old update issue:

    Windows 10 Anniversary update: Search bar doesn't work after update

    In addition to the start menu, entering search text in the "Windows Settings" dialog's search-box also freezes it.

    I've tried all solutions provided therein, but none has worked so far. So far I've tried solutions based on

    • DCIM tool
    • A PowerShell script
    • Tweaking.com's repair tool

    How do I fix it?

    Activation of Windows 10 Pro doesn´t work

    Hallo, i can´t activate my windows 10 Pro (free upgrade from windows 7);

    Info: 0xC0EA000A

    Manual activation doesn´t work either.

    Important (i think): I had to re-install windows 10 (3 or even 4 times). because I had massive problems with "Start and Cortana Issues".

    I hope, I don´t have to search the old product key.

    PS. Yes, Windows 7 was genuine.
