    Cortana just disappeared!


    Had an Update around Midnight last night and this Morning, I found Cortana has disappeared together with my reminders and no Microphone Symbol showing.

    Did anyone else have this problem?

    I changed to Search Box to an Icon but now Cortana is gone and the Search Box won't search.

    I can't get to "Settings." When I left-click on the Start button I get a critical error and Windows logs me off. I can right-click the Start button and it gives me a list of operations I can do, like shut down or sign out. Is there another way to get to "Settings."

    Action Center(next to system clock) or clicking something in the "old" control panel like Defender > Settings in the top right of Defender.

    Sounds similar to my issue here: Re-installing Cortana

    I initially though it was down to careless use of Ccleaner, but am now beginning to wonder.
