I disabled Cortana in Windows 10, however when I opened the Task Manager I found that Cortana was still using a good chunk of my memory. Is this a problem, and can I stop the process without harming my computer?


What you see is the SearchUI.exe which also displays the search results if you don't use Cortana. You can use WPR/xerf/WPA to track its memory usage and look for what it allocates memory. But you can't really change it.

  • I can remove it (it doesn't stop me) but it keeps coming back.
