    Check this option here, BingSearchEnabled was set to 0, changing this to 1, has brought Cortana back to life for me

    I just noticed this about Cortana. I also tweaked the 'BingSearchEnabled' registry item to a '1' and Cortana is back up working for me too! Thanks Paul!

    You're Welcome

    Good to hear this works for many people

    When MS release the next patch, I might revert this settings, just to see if they change this flag back to 1
