    I disabled Cortana in previous version (and mantained it disabled)... so: why these two programs are running?

    You know what i never notice two or more instances of RuntimeBroker.exe in Task Manger. The RuntimeBroker.exe is stored in C:\Windows\System32 folder if the RuntimeBroker.exe not running from C:\Windows\System32 folder then you have malware infection.

    Every RuntimeBroker.exe runs from C:\Windows\System32\ ... So I guess it's ok. Well, before 1709 I've no RuntimeBroker.exe starting with Windows and staying in.
