@Carlos Gomez Cedeño 

Thanks, worked well, but was wondering if this would be a solution for Enterprise level :)

I see MS will release or already released KB, that possibly fix this issue.

I saw a quote:

" There is a lot of evidence in the JavaScript source to suggest that it was built by the Bing team. If I had to guess, I’d say that what happened here was that the desktop search experience was moved from the Windows team to the Bing web team, and they just don’t have the skills to build desktop programs with efficient C++."

not sure how much of it is true
