I am running Windows 10 education 64 bit x64 based processor.

The Search bar doesn't take full input. For example when I click it, the search screen opens. After that I am able to input 2 sometimes 3 or 4 characters. However 4 is the max and that is not consistent. Once those characters are entered the process freezes, and doesn't allow me to type anything else.

Rebooting: Naturally this was my first approach and that yielded no change
Stopping and restarting search: Tried that as well, no change

This attempt also failed the second account gets instantly locked and I am given the

Is there any actual fix for this problem? What else can I possibly do?
