    Creators upgrade search freeze and not working


    Search freeze when I insert the first character
    also it does not shows new installed programs,
    anyone knows a working solution?

    Another viable option I'm finding appealing
    is to upgrade to windows 8.1 but my
    brand new asus only lists win 10 drivers
    on the support site, will those drivers work
    in windows 8.1? anyone tried to install 8.1
    using win 10 drivers?

    Many thanks for any help!

    For anyone that may have a similar issue:

    For the new asus, born with windows 10,
    i recreated an usb install media and for now
    search seems to work properly.

    For an older system I reverted back to 8.1.

    Since I see so many people with my very same search
    problem here's a brief follow up:

    windows 10 search still broken at the end, it does
    not find installed third parts application and only
    keeps suggesting app store results ...
    cannot understand why...

    Windows 8.1: after three days of "Checking for updates..."
    green bar hell I decided to throw in the towel and
    install Ubuntu, in 20 min I had a working
    and fully patched OS and my blood pressure has already
    dropped and I fell relaxed
