Can't Change Search Engine

Jul 29, 2015

I can't change my search engine on Microsoft Edge. I know how, but it won't let me click add. Like I can't physically click any of the 3 options, and they're all grayed out.

Change Search Engine From Bing To Google

Oct 9, 2015

I like the concept / idea of being able to search from the taskbar but I want to change the default search engine used by the search box from bing o google without changing my browser or installing another app or extension. I don't want to use google chrome and its bing2google extension.
There has to be a way to force Win10, Cortana and the search box to use another search engine of your own choice. Changing the default search engine of IE & Edge is easy enough to do.
It would be great if Google could develop an app to change the search engines used by Win10's search box, IE & Edge in one click. It would be a lot quicker and less tiresome than doing it all manually.

How To Change Search Engine Back To Google In Address Toolbar

Jan 9, 2016

I managed to change the search engine to Google in the new Win10 search located in the menu and also in Edge. However, the little address toolbar, that can be added to the taskbar by putting a checkmark in the address toolbar after right clicking on the taskbar and choosing toolbars has suddenly switched to Bing as the search engine. I would love to have this set at Google as it always was. I find this toolbar so much more convenient than the one that came with the new win10 menu. I have already turned off Cortana over there.

Browser/Email :: Edge Search Does Not Permit Change Of Region

Sep 24, 2015

I've configured Edge to my correct home page. Because I live in Thailand Edge directs me to the Google Thailand page. I corrected that easily by using as my home page.

However, Edge always reverts to the Thai regional search, ignoring my home page setting. I've searched high and low for a way to change this but no luck.

Windows Reset Engine Stopped Working

Mar 5, 2016

So I've been having this error for idk at least 2-3months now, happens every now and then, but at least 1x by each windows login.

Think it started by one more recent Cumulative Update probably around December,. I also stumbled on one MS thread and that user reported it around the same time as I first noticed it for the first time. [URL] ....

In event viewer

Faulting application name: rundll32.exe_ResetEng.dll, version: 10.0.10586.0, time stamp: 0x5632d71b
Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.10586.122, time stamp: 0x56cbf9dd
Exception code: 0xc0000409
Fault offset: 0x00000000000953f7
Faulting process id: 0x1218
Faulting application start time: 0x01d178d4abbab679
Faulting application path: C:WINDOWSsystem32

[Code] ...

SFC scannow didn't do anything, rebuilding WMI didnt work either.. DISM online also nothing.

Installation :: Base Filtering Engine Disabled

Sep 22, 2015

I thought all my Windows 10 problems were resolved when I finally figured out that Avanquest Powerdesk was preventing explorer from loading the desktop but it seems that was just the beginning of my Win 10 problems.

Once I finally got the desktop to load I then discovered that the start button isn't working, the search bar isn't working, most of the programs that should be in the task bar are not loading, Avast antivirus wasn't running and that the uninstall option in the control panel doesn't work.

Having seen that avast is one possible cause for the start button not working and having tried every other way of fixing the start button that I could find I decided to delete Avast. Because of the uninstall button not working I had to do it the same way I had removed powerdesk - delete the files first and then run cccleaner to clean up the registry entries.

It was when trying to reinstall Avast that I noticed that the install wouldn't run because the Base Filtering Engine Service is failing to start. As so many other services are dependent on that one I suspect that as being a possible cause of all of the other issues (for example none of the security apart from Comodo firewall is running because it is all dependent on this service).

The message in the event viewer appears to indicate that the service does not have sufficient access to be able to run.

Apps :: Audio Engine Missing - Error Message

Aug 29, 2015

Since installing Windows 10, I have tried to open two programmes that I had previously used successfully and received error messages about the audio engine.

The first was Audacity (Wave recorder and editor) and I got two messages on trying to open it - "Error while opening sound device. Please check the input device settings and the project sample rate." The other message was "Could not find any audio device. You will not be able to play or record audio. Error: Internal Port/Audio error."

The second program I tried to open gave me the following message "No audio devices. Audio Engine Error: Bas settings."

The curious thing is that I can play things through iTunes for instance quite satisfactorily (admittedly through and external amplifier, but that must mean that there's an audio output).

Is it possible that Windows 10 has removed the audio devices or altered the audio engine settings (whatever that means!)? If so, how do I regain the status quo as far as audio is concerned?

Installation :: Clean Install - Could Not Reinitialize Deployment Engine

Jan 16, 2016

I recently had to restore my PC to a Windows 7 System Image from 2012.

That worked OK, but Windows Update kept failing to install the hundreds of updates needed to bring it up to date.

So I upgraded to Windows 10 instead.

That worked fine and is what I am now using.

I thought I should create and run the Clean Install media in case I need it in the future. I created a DVD as I didn't have a 4GB USB to hand. Was able to boot from the DVD and started the Clean Install process but, after selecting the hard disk partition to use, I got the Windows Setup message 'could not reinitialize the deployment engine'.

What this means and can only find some old references (Vista vintage) on the web. Should I have clicked on 'Format' for the partition?

Cannot Search By Typing On Start Menu Or Using Search Spyglass?

Oct 20, 2015

Win 10 Enterprise. Worked fine for a couple of days, but now I cannot seem to bring up the start menu and start typing anything. It will not search. I also tried in the search box or spyglass... I just click on it and nothing happens. It is a major inconvenience. I don't want to do a restore and keep my files, because there is a HUGE list of applications I will then need to restore. I also tried to click on Cortana, but clicking the app does nothing, doesn't even bring it up.

I tried re-indexing search items, I tried the search troubleshooter. I have rebooted, I have installed all updates. Someone on another forum said kill the Cortana task... well there isn't one running.

Settings Not Appearing When Search For Them In Search Bar

Aug 28, 2015

I Just bought a new XPS 13 (lowest end model) that came with Microsoft 10 pre-installed (bought it from Microsoft store). my problem is that I cannot search for settings in the main search bar or even the settings search bar, the settings search bar simply doesn't work at all, and to double check that this wasn't a windows 10 issue I tried it out on a friend's Laptop and it worked fine. I took screenshots of both my Laptop and my friend's.

My Laptop:

searching for "add or remove" brings up nothing, even in the settings search

My friend's Laptop:

as you can see it works fine on my friend's laptop bringing up the settings i was searching for

When Boot Up PC Cannot Search In Search Bar

Oct 10, 2015

Sometimes when I boot my PC I cannot search in the Search Bar, I have to restart the system then it usually works fine again until the next reboot.I have decided to rebuild the index to just the things I use regularly (I know how to navigate through the system so I don't usually need to search for much, it's purely ease).

These are the things which have been excluded: $SysReset; AMD; Fraps; history; inetpub; Intel; MSOCache; NPE; Perflogs; Program Files (x64); Program Files; ProgramData; Appdata; Appdata; WindowsIt has currently (after 1 hour) indexed 4,000 items. Do any of these things need to be indexed, Program Files for example? If they do not need to be then I probably will exclude them.

I am connected to the internet and if I type a "web question" into the box it opens Edge and give me the answer. Edge stopped working so I reset it with "Reset_Microsoft_Edge" from this forum, now it is working again, but I have this new problem.
