Welcome to the forums Balogun :).

This error sometimes happens when the Cortana search index is corrupt. You could try the following steps to rebuild it and see if that helps:

  • Create a new administrator in Window 10, then sign in as that user
  • Delete (or rename) C:\Users\<PROBLEMUSERNAME>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy
  • Sign back in as the PROBLEM USER
  • Open PowerShell as an admin and type (or paste):

    Code:
    Add-AppxPackage -Path “C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy\Appxmanifest.xml” -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register
  • You can then delete the temporary administrator account you created in the first step.
