Bing Smart Search isn’t working at all

Asked by Main de Justice on 10/30/2013 at 4:07 AM
Why Bing Smart Search doesn’t work on my computer? Maybe I messed up with settings when I was installing Windows..? I don’t know where to look, nothing works. I have tried using network troubleshooter and turning Windows Location Provider on. In PC settings >> Your search experience 2nd function is selected. I have also tried enabling 1st one, but it didn’t make any difference.

Also, I wanted to say (don’t know if these problems are related) that apps, made by Microsoft (except Store app), don’t show live content. If you open the app you can see that it can use the internet, don’t know why they aren’t using it while showing live content. Or maybe the problem is elsewhere..?

Note that my internet connection works well with everything else, only Bing Smart Search (not sure about the problem with live content viewing) is causing me problems.

    You must have some network drives included or mapped to your pc.
    If you eliminate network locations from your libraries it will come back. I noticed that even if I included a network drive in Windows live photo gallery that it broke it.
