Sounds like one or more of the following are enabled in either GPO or the user's Search configuration:

o Do not search communications
o Do not search for files
o Do not search Internet
o Do not search programs and Control Panel items

These are distinct from the GPO that disables Search availability.  "[These options] will not make the search box go away. It just becomes inactive."

Log in as the Local User, go to Services and make sure Windows Search service is running.

Then go to Control Panel, Index Options and make USERS, Outlook and any other folder you want is selected in locations.

Then go to Advanced and Rebuild the Index. Watch that Indexing is proceeding and then wait (several hours) until done.

Now try searching.

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run SFC /SCANNOW. Allow to complete, shut down, start up and then test search again

Why can't you search?  Can't enter search word into search bar, etc.?

Make a new, test, Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Windows Account and set up indexing.
Now try searching in the new Windows Account.

It could be a corrupted user profile
