    Software or programs that was installed on your computer can cause the glitch or bugs to show up. There's also a possibility that the system files on your computer got corrupted or went missing. However, we don;t want to jump into any conclusions until we
    isolated your concern. We suggest that you perform a clean boot on your computer and see if the issue persists. The steps on how to perform clean boot is in this
    article. Simply click on the operating system that you're running on your computer to see the right steps.

    We're looking forward to your feedback.

    Click the start button, in the search box type in 'windows updates', click on 'windows update'
    in the search results list, in the left side of the windows update window click 'change settings'
    then in the option bar select 'Never check for updates'.

    Search Bar/Cortana


    Thank you for posting your concern here in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 family.

    From the description, I understand that you are still receiving the pop up notifications, despite having disabled the search functionality in windows 10.

    Steps to disable the Search Bar

    • Right click on the task bar.
    • Select the "Search" option.
    • Select "Disable."
    However, if the above steps don't work out, perform the below suggested steps and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Open a CMD window started as Administrator.

    Repair corruption: Dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth.

    Run this command next: Sfc /scannow

    Now run these two commands:

    PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    Hope the above information was helpful.

    Thank You.
