    I just want to complete my last post:
    I have 2 PC, 1 with OS x86 and the other x64.
    In x86 the Search within settings was working, in x64 was not working at all, I was getting msg I posted above.
    Since some days I have been trying to fix it in x64 but no luck.
    Today, suddenly it was working and the only major thins was Disabling Firewall for Public and Private, and also doing a Repair for LAN Adapter. I think this is incredible.

    Search by means of Task Bar (WIN+S) in both Laptops are not working unless I have a Internet Connection active and no MS Blocked IP.

    I used the Cortana off in the hopes it would disappear from my taskmanager, but it is still under there.

    I play Everquest MMO and I have been getting 'out of memory. You may want to close some applications' message with Cortana running. So I need to do this, but the reg file doesn't appear to help. it is using about 38 megs of ram on my computer. I have 4 gigs, and need to lower usage of non-essential items.


    My gear is listed in my system specs here.

    edit 2:

    I have Win 10 Home.

    Hello Jim,

    This is normal.

    This will only enable or disable Cortana the personal assistant, and not the Cortana process (SearchUI.exe) used by Windows Search.
