Supposedly fixed my Microsoft: https://docs.microso...shows blank box
 

Resolved: Windows Search shows blank box
We are aware of a temporary server-side issue causing Windows search to show a blank box. This issue has been resolved for most users and in some cases, you might need to restart your device. We are working diligently to fully resolve the issue and will provide an update once resolved. 
 
This issue was resolved at 12:00 PM PST. If you are still experiencing issues, please restart your device. In rare cases, you may need to manually end the SearchUI.exe or SearchApp.exe process via Task Manager. (To locate these processes, select CTRL + Shift + Esc then select the Details tab.)

 SearchUI.EXE   under task manager>details looks like the attachment, on my system. Should it be suspended and disabled?

 

Cortana runs OK as does the rest of the PC to my knowledge.

Disabled applies to UAC, not to the SearchUI.exe

you may need to manually end the SearchUI.exe or SearchApp.exe process via Task Manager. (To locate these processes, select CTRL + Shift + Esc then select the Details tab.)

 

This is moot as I am a running OK but If the above is what we are referring to, what am I not reading right which would indicate turning off UAC

I just searched UAC and turned it off then on. It seems to say, turn off searchui.exe manually.

I don't understand the wording.

Does Search.Exe mean UAC?

No, UAC means User Account Control, see here for a long explanation from Wikipedia:
 
https://en.wikipedia...Account_Control

SearchUI.exe is associated with Cortana.
