    I'm not sure when it happened exactly, but in the last few days, my Windows 10 taskbar search field has stopped working.
    No matter what I type into it, a blank/black popup is the only thing that displays.
    I did install 2 Windows Updates on 2/4, but I am not sure if they caused it or the weird issue where Parallels become "stuck" and the Windows 10 computer would never restart, so I had to force shutdown my MacBook.
    Here are the two updates I installed:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4534132/kb4534132-cumulative-update-for-net-framework
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4532695/windows-10-update-kb4532695

    Any thoughts on how I can fix this? While this Windows VM is only about 3 months old, it hasn't been used much until recently.

    If Windows 10 Taskbar Search No Longer Works then do the following thing below:
    1. Rebuild the Index.
    2. Run Troubleshooter of the Windows.
    3. Use the System File Checker.
    4. Enable Windows Firewall.
    5. Disable Third-party Anti-Virus.
    6. Rebuild Swapfile.sys
    7. Restart Windows Explorer.
