    Win 10 Pro 64 bit

    There is one odd thing and I don't know if it is related. When I open the Control Panel, the icons for Windows Update, Biometrics, and Performance Information and Tools are all blank, and nothing happens when I click on any of those three items.

    I suppose I don't really care as Windows Update was the only one that I will use, and I can now get to that through the Settings window.

    For those, like me, that could not use the posted solution. Try searching for and downloading the full/manual install for KB3081424 from Microsoft (about 150 MB). It fixed the issue for me.

    If you had the wrong directory permissions for something needed, Settings will not open.

    I resolved this problem by removing and then reinstalling the most recent cumulative update for windows 10. It turns out that most of these updates by MS have a disclaimer that says:

    Important If you install a language pack after you install this update, you must reinstall this update. Therefore, we recommend that you install any language packs that you need before you install this update. For more information, see Add language packs to Windows.

    As soon as I uninstalled the that update my search began to work correctly again, then I just let Windows reinstall the update and all was good.
