    Update and Cortana

    Hi. Has this happened to anyone else?
    I had set up Cortana for use in the UK, downloaded the language and speech components.
    Everything was working fine and then the latest update restarted my computer and Cortana needed set up again.
    I am in the process of downloading the components again.

    I'm really starting to hate Windows 10.
    Ok, so after setting up Cortana again, now the search function doesn't work, I just get a big empty grey box.

    Click image for larger version.

    And things are slow too.
    Its driving me nuts. Its not as if I even did anything! The update happened by itself and now I have issues.
    I don't have the time or energy for this cr*p.
    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Hi, basics:
    a. Enable System restore and schedule a task to create e.g. a daily restore point.
    b. Use 3rd party disk imaging regularly so you can quickly restore your PC to a previously state. Also creates a full backup.

    I have UK English set up: Have received KB3135173 - no issues.

    Note that Search in Settings is not related to Cortana but to Windows search.
    That is, if Search is off or some area in Users is not indexed, Search in Settings does not work.

    Speed is another matter. Depends on e.g.
    - is your CPU or disk busy with sthg
    - do you have enough RAM

    Check your task manager.

    Some strange conflict or other driver/hardware issue.
