Outlook 2016 search not working

Recently I was notified by a customer that Outlook search wasn’t working anymore as expected (Search not working at all, or missing results). After some searching I found out that this was caused by a Windows 10 Update where a shared DLL was updated: KB4467684

In the the end there is a quick fix by running a simple command that repairs the effected MSWB7.dll file.: sfc/scannow (run as administrator)

The following output will be generated bij de SFC/scannow command
