Way to the latest problem with the Microsoft system.

Well, the life of a Windows user is not easy. The latest system update caused a whole avalanche of serious problems, such as unstable operation of the OS or critical errors, and yesterday software owners encountered another difficulty in the form of a non-functioning system search engine. Microsoft has released a patch for most users, which fixes this difficulty, but if you don't belong to the majority, check how to repair it yourself.

When there was a crash on the Bing side, it also caused problems on devices with Windows 10.
