    Thanks for posting in the forum.

    We've found an solution from Samhrutha G. in a similar post and hope it is helpful.

     

    Important: The instructions below contain steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: How to back up and restore the registry in Windows

     

    1. Click Windows + R (Opens run window)
    2. Type regedit and press Enter.
    3. In registry editor windows locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Search
    4. In the right pane, right click on SetupCompletedSuccessfully and click on Modify.

    NOTE: If SetupCompletedSuccessfully is not there, then in the right pane, right click on a empty area and click on ‘New’ select ‘DWORD (32 bit)’ Value and type SetupCompletedSuccessfully and press Enter.

    1. Type 0 and click on OK.

    This is the number zero.

    1. Close Regedit
    2. Restart the computer
