    Cortana trying to phone home via SearchUI.exe

    Out 12:33:14 PM 1/6/2018 (https) TCP (6) [S] C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy\SearchUI.exe

    It continually tries to access the internet. I have Private Firewall as my Firewall and have granular control over what gets access to the web. It tried to access the web 35 times in under 30 minutes.
    If you open an app, WIndows 10 wants the app to phone home. I tried to copy and paste the above into Paint and it wanted access to the web. What for?!
    Win 10 is some piece of Spyware....
