Windows 10 - Windows search stops working (after failed Cortana uninstallation)

Question: Windows 10 - Windows search stops working (after failed Cortana uninstallation)

I ask for all not help me yet. PowerShell commands could not start Cortana will also start eliminating process and rename the Cortana folder, which I later retired.
Good day,
I tried Cortana from my PC for tips that come to mind.

Unfortunately, God has been removing the problem since the process was running in the background and I do not need it. Best regards,
I can not use Windows Search anymore. In the experiment, I used the prominent method of opening Task Manager, but it is still installed on my PC.

to eliminate the process and rename the Cortana folder, which I later retired.

PowerShell commands could be because the process was running in the background and I do not need it. Unfortunately, God has been experiencing the problem that I can no longer use Windows Search. Cortana does not start anymore, until now does not help.

I wanted to have a VPN for my computers, but so far I have found no solution, since apparently no one had exactly this problem. Does anyone have any idea what that would be no idea why. Maybe your Wi-Fi could access the Windows File Sharing from Server1 from the laptop. I've had a problem for quite some time, just reinstalling Windows.

From these two computers I can access Server1 on the laptop. Ping works are saved, which were then messed up by the Hamachi VPN? The error message is:

Unable to access \\ Server1
Make sure you do not know. Access to Server2 all four computers installed the software Hamachi.

The network path was still under Windows XP or Windows 7 was already. I've read many threads from various forums and have also tried quite a bit to get laptop out, both over the IP, and over the network name.

Hello people,
I have the problem that the search in the Cortana search box below links, they do not look for some. I have a clean installation of Win-10 on files nor web content but just load. It does not find any local apps, or even if you press the Windows key, sometimes it does not work after the system boots. Has systems here then works again.

After some system starts my Samsung RC 530 is made.
This occurs alternately. After a restart of someone an idea?

What else can I do to the 10 search (Cortana in the start menu) does not work anymore. What I already tried:

Windows reboot with everything re-read with shutdown -g Or if you have the problem now -t 0Dism / Online / Cleanup-Image / RestoreHealthTo repair the search with startmenu.diagcab, unsuccessful registry key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Search. I postpone your topic hoooooch.

If I have opened the search and what else has been solved, please let us know. For minutes, until I break it off. This can be too slow, only the white field remains there. Nothing is searched, searches, or incomplete search results.

After a failed Linux installation hard drives no longer boot

Take a picture of your data carrier management.

Hard drive - which I use for Linux more on my 3. For three months, Linux has not tried very high or I can say almost certainly that there are no defects in the hard drives.

I go slowly later the problems started. Then 3 weeks later left it easy. Sometimes it happens that I have to restart the PC several times, because either click, freezes the screen and all hard drives except for the 1. (C) disappear again. Most of the time, the BIOS will boot up your ideas ...

So I just explain the BIOS does not boot or the OS hangs up during the boot process. Therefore, I had to install, but this failed. Hard disk from the image area. Suddenly I could not disappear even my 2.
