A Windows 10 update is causing pain and anguish around the world

"After installing KB4512941 (OS Build 18362.329) the pop-out window with the search results stays blank, SearchUI.exe is constantly using CPU and ~200MB of memory", a user documented the problem on Microsoft's Feedback Hub. Microsoft is testing this with Windows Insiders and has marked the design as beta, suggesting it can change and be formed by suggestions.

One user on Reddit complained about the latest update killing his gaming performance though he didn't provide details about it.

Microsoft shipped the latest Windows 10 update that was supposed to bring a solution to an existing problem.

Microsoft released the cumulative update KB4512941 for Windows 10 version 1903 last week; soon thereafter, reports started to emerge on several Internet forums that the update was causing high CPU usage on some systems.

According to Net Applications, in August, Windows 7 dropped to 30.34%, a loss of 1.49%.

Bank mergers: FM Sitharaman says amalgamation won't lead to any job loss
This will make it the second-largest Public Sector Bank in the country with Rs. 18 lakh crore business. I want to assure every union in everyone of these banks to please recall what I have said last Friday.


Uninstalling the optional update appears to be the quickest way to address the problem.

The reason seems to be that the users have disabled the search through Bing.

Microsoft has recently confirmed that what it describes as "a code issue" in Windows 10 generates a compatibility problem with Microsoft Visio, leading to freezes or delays when using this Office app. Delete the key, but be aware this will mean all local search queries are sent to Bing.

The software giant says a fix is already being developed, but for the time being, no specifics are available as to when it could be shipped to users.

Why did Microsoft release the update anyway? These new adjustments will set off robotically once you remove a keyboard from a device like a Surface Pro, and Microsoft has confirmed that a devoted "tablet mode" will stay however you'll have to allow it manually.
