Windows 10: Search button isnt working

    Search button isnt working

    So i upgraded to W10 on my laptop (MSI GT-60), and ran into several problems, most annoying are these two:
    1. search button next to start isnt working and nothing is helping, i tried to restart Windows Search in services, but that didnt help, the only solution is to create a new windows account, then it works, but thats just not ideal
    2. a minor problem, but still - icons on my desktop cant be moved to the very bottom of my screen - it simply puts them back one "box" above, and thats just annoying, since im used to having the trash can at the very bottom of my screen.

    Ive done sfc/scannow several times, tried to clean the PC with CCleaner, but nothing helped, the computer is otherwise running smoothly, but this is just annoying

    Well I've got the same problem. You can kill the search.exe process in the task manager, this temporarily fixes the problem (at least on my pc). But sooner or later search will crash again until you terminate it in the task manager....
