Busted … Search function on Cortana's desktop
Microsoft version 18362.356 (KB4515384) for its Windows update May 10, 2019 (version 1903) was implemented on Tuesday with security improvements for Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, network technology and input devices, and a CPU usage solution that, for some, has broken the desktop search.
Security settings address a variety of speculative side channel vulnerabilities known as microarchitecture data sampling (MDS) for 32-bit x86 versions of Windows. Intel dealt with the CVE in question: CVE-2019-11091, CVE-2018-12126, CVE-2018-12127, CVE-2018-12130, in May.
The update, released simultaneously with Build 17763.737 for Windows 10 The October 2018 update (v1809) also includes security enhancements for a variety of Windows components.
Microsoft says that its update corrects a high CPU usage problem associated with SearchUI.exe reported by a small number of users who disabled web search through Windows Desktop Search.
But your solution has removed SearchUI.exe for some. Those who grab claim that SearchUI.exe, a part of Cortana, will not start after installing KB4515384.
"What a mess: I had the original problem with SearchUI.exe and I was sending my CPU to incomparable heights and showing a large black panel of nothing," Reddit user cyrenaic101 wrote in a thread of complaints. "So I uninstalled that crap. And then comes the & # 39; solution & # 39; KB4515384. Search completely broken …"
Similar complaints arose in another Reddit discussion of the updates.

Among those who claim to have undone the problem, the solutions involve returning to an earlier version and blocking the updates, which allows the search of Bing through Windows Registry or replacement of the Cortana Cache folder with a version of an earlier version.
In November of last year, Microsoft published a blog post by Michael Fortin, corporate vice president of Windows, addressing concerns about the quality of Windows updates after a series of problems that culminated in the relaunch of its update of Windows 10 October 2018.
Despite the problematic publication, Fortin said the quality of the Windows versions has been improving. "In the last three years, one of our key indicators of product quality (customer service calls and chat volumes) has steadily declined even as the number of Windows 10 machines increased," he said.
Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment. ®
