Users who log in for the first time cannot search in Windows Start menu (new profile).
On the second login the issue is no longer present.
Steps to reproduce:
(search does not display results, search result area stays black)
We found out that just killing the SearchUI.exe process resolves the issue immediately (without re-login).
Someone recognozes this issue?

Good morning, buddy!
I had the same problem, I had to change the Windows registry. See if it helps you, here it worked perfectly.
1. In the Registry Editor (regedit) use the left sidebar to navigate to the following key:
2. Right-click the Search icon and choose New > DWORD (32-bit) Value. Name the new value BingSearchEnabled.
3. Double-click the new BingSearchEnabled value to open its properties dialog. The number in the “Value data” box should already be 0—just ensure it’s still 0. Click OK to continue.
4. Below BingSearchEnabled, you should see CortanaConsent. Double-click this value to open its properties dialog. Change its “Value Data” box to “0”.
5. If you don’t see CortanaConsent, create it by following the same steps you used to create BingSearchEnabled.
6. You can close the Registry Editor now. If you search your start menu, you should now see only local results. If the change doesn’t take effect immediately, restart your PC.
Sadly your solution did not work for us. We've started a support call to Microsoft. they gave us the following solutions for testing:
-Turn off display of recent search entries in the File Explorer search box
Workaround 2 (This one while disable email search):
-Start Menu and Taskbar
-Do not search communications
