I have came across alot of blogs asking to try to update / troubleshoot windows update, but all those things did not resolve the issue for me.
Here's the final working method ❕❕.
All you need to do is execute tje below commands one by one from a Adminstrator command prompt.
REG ADD HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search /v BingSearchEnabled /t REG_DWORD /d 0
REG ADD HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search /v CortanaConsent /t REG_DWORD /d 0
- You don't have to restart your computer. The search will now work normally.
