    I think your Cortana has not been enabled or has been disabled.
    If Cortana is enabled, the search box should say Ask me anything, not search the Web and Windows.

    You said " since yesterday..............", please do a system restore. Pick a date that is at least 3 days ago as your restore point.

    Yes cortana is disabled but it was disabled from the moment i install windows 10 ,but i was able to see popular news in search box...
    I will do system restore ,just to ask does this can be the problem with bing because i get message : It's not you, it's us ,when i am trying to open web search history settings?

    Edit: I mean i disable cortana after i install windows 10

    I can't answer your last question because I do not use Bing. If I need to search the web, I open IE11.
    And I never have the message you received.
    Sorry.

    Sorry.
    I am out of ideas, unless you don't mind doing a Repair Install, also known as In-place Install.
