    • I start my PC and use it for a while.
    • Start menu works as it should (There is a search bar )
    • After 2-3 minutes of usage, the taskbar freezes and makes me wait for 10-15 secs. After that explorer exe crashes itself and restarts.

    However, this time search bar is gone missing.
    • I restart explorer.exe but still search bar is missing.
    • I log off and log in, but still search bar is missing
    • It only comes back after I restart my PC.

    The bottom line is I can say explorer.exe doesn't keep crashing but it crashes once and search bar is gone missing.
    Also when I click "Search" from the list on the left, It doesn't show anything.

    How can I fix this? I tried SFC but it didn't make any difference as well.
