    If you have turned off the telemetry info, along with went in to change Cortona from not communicating with Bing which is actually ran off of Yahoo's servers, it is not going to find anything.

    Keep in mind that everything you search for on Cortona is being uploaded to Microsoft's servers and used to track what you are doing, so that they can refine the Boolean.
