Everything keeps messing with windows search bar and other text fields in win 10 apps

Postby gold604 » Fri Nov 03, 2017 11:08 pm

Hey, everything keeps messing with windows search bar and other text fields in win 10 apps(can't type, or paste using shortcut...). I had to uninstall everything to fix the issue. Temporary fix was launching .exe program in: "C:\Windows\system32\ctfmon.exe", after rebooting the issue came back.
Thanks.

I know nothing of 10, much less of "apps"...

Which version of 10?

Are all apps likewise affected or only some?

Do you need, use the services of ctfmon.exe?
(I never have, & In days of of ctfmon.exe always caused issues on my end, & I always specifically stopped it from running. [I've never used Office.])

Are you running Everything as administrator? If so, please try running Everything as a standard user and installing the Everything service:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the General tab on the left.
  • Check Everything service.
  • Uncheck Run as administrator.
  • Click OK.
  • Restart Everything (right click the Everything tray icon and click Exit).
