  2. Search and Cortana suddenly not working.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per the issue description search and Cortana suddenly stops working. The issue could be if some system files get corrupted. So, I would suggest you to check the system files are they working fine or not and to check that try to run
    System File Checker (SFC) tool.



    SFC scan will scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

    How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows 8.


    • Press Windows key and
      X at the same time.

    • Choose Command Prompt (Admin) from the context menu.

    • In the command prompt, type
      sfc /scannow
      and hit Enter.

    • Exit command prompt.

    For more information refer to this link:

    • Press Windows key + R

    • Type control userpasswords2 and click OK

    • Click on add under users tab

    • Click on Local account

    • Choose a name for the account

    • Add password if you want to

    • Apply and click OK.
