When does the search box pop up ? when you click on any file or folder ?

✔ Best Answer
Try running Malwarebytes in case there is an infection involved that is causing it.

Run System Restore to a date before the problem first occurred (maybe even a week before it was apparent), use 'show more restore points' if needed. Then run Malwarebytes, just to be sure. These two together will restore system files that may have been corrupted and search for a possible cause for that corruption.

Of course, if you have not tried it, you can simply try restarting your computer since it may be just a corruption of a file in your running memory that needs to be reloaded at start up. (Don't want to overlook the obvious.)

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
