Lenovo IdeaPad 320 Windows Search Bar Not Working

Good day to all!

 

I just recently purchased this laptop and so far it has been kind to me, except one thing - the windows search bar.

 

While I was setting up my laptop for my personal use, windows update prompted me to restart, and after the reboot all of a sudden the windows search bar doesn't work anymore. Although I am still able to access windows apps, their search bars (like the microsoft store) doesn't work, it won't type for me.

 

Having searched through google and some other forums I have found a temporary solution... by running this line into the Run Command:

 

C:\Windows\system32\ctfmon.exe

 

Unfortunately I have to do this every time I boot up my laptop. Powershell method doesn't work for me. I already tried that as it is the first common way to solve the windows search bar issue.

 

Any permanent solutions out there? This windows search bar bug started after the windows update. I would be glad if anybody can help me with this problem. 

 

Thank you!
