Customer Question

Having upgraded to Windows 10 Home last week, Cortana is showing Disabled by Company Policy, and also Online Search not supported in region and language. Having read others have this same problem although residing in the UK, as suggested I have downloaded the Language Pack and Speech, but still nothing, no Cortana icon shows in task bar, and no Notebook anywhere either. If this is a hiccup with Microsoft are technicians working to resolve this and do we just have to just wait for this to be resolved automatically by ms.
Also I hav e noticed an update is showing KB3081704 as failing to install sinc e I upgraded on my laptop on 29th July - is this connected in any way or is this something different. I am a silver surfer, and although quite good at googling info I need, I am not ok with lots of tech. terms.
Your advice would be appreciated.
