Several OS users have found their way to Reddit and Microsoft's forums to share their problem: the in-system search engine may crash on some occasions, and display an error message "It takes too long to load. ".

The prime suspect was quickly identified, it would be update KB4550945 for Windows 10. The bug would persist even after a complete restart of the computer. Fortunately there is a method to correct the error, while waiting for an update from Microsoft.
