    I have been running avast antivirus software.

    I was going to unload avast and discovered a 'repair' option so I tried it. Rebooted the machine and TADA. I now have my search bar working again.

    Hope this works for you.

    :)

  2. Start button and Search bar no longer works

    Well that was about as much use as a chocolate teapot.

    So my new user account allows me to use the start and search but all my documents are in my other user account.

    I can't even open my scanner without logging into another user account, but then any documents are in the wrong place when I save them.

    And I've just come full circle in that I can't get all of the windows updates to install.

  3. Start button and Search bar no longer works

    Windows has updated the OS to a later version of Windows 10,

    But now I can't access any programs from the start button. Nothing happens there. Also the search tab doesn't let me type anything in either.

    I can't open anything other than programs that are already on my taskbar.

    What is going on and why can't I open windows update to see if there are any updates to install?
