    I dont know what i did wheni created my ISO, but it seems like i disabled the possibility to search in Windows. I mean when i hit the Windows button i can not search for anything at all. Also when i do a right klick on the Windows button and then want to see "search", nothing happens.

    Is there a way to reactivate that without doing a new iso? Because i already isntalled 5 PCs and i think a fix would be less time consuming.

    Sry for my english and thanks for the help

    Everything refer to that you have lost a part of the registry or it is blocked by some local policy rule, what You have made.
    So, think about what changes you made or what You blocked.

    Say one more thing - does all the menus popup windows opens and everything is visible there, but only search function don't work (do nothing) or also the window won't open?
    If it is so, that windows opens, You can write there but it will not start to search, may be two reasons:
    Windows search servis don't start, it may be disabled or set to disabled or the second, You have disabled indexing.
    If even windows won't open, is the problem in registry.

    If you remove the cortana, there will be no search.
    Do you want to search - disable cortana - do not remove.
