Windows 10 – issues with installed programs not showing up in search

For whatever reason, windows 10 search stopped searching my all apps. I found out re initializing cortona fixes it, which you can do by running an elevated powershell and pasting this into it:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

Once I did that, everything popped up, no reboot was required.

IE9, and IE10 popups to upgrade to IE11 on Windows

We had users complaining about needing to upgrade to IE11, they were running IE8,9, and 10. I tracked down the KB that was installed on patch tuesday to: KB3124275. We have users who have to use Internet Explorer 10 for specific applications, so we cannot ugprade. I removed it from SUS and users PC’s, hopefully this’ll save someone some time.

You can see the MS KB here:

And note part of the way down it says the GR KB is here:
