    Turn off desired options:
    (or should I say, 'undesired'...)

    I've got all that turned off, but it's still running in the back ground.

    That's merely the Search UI, but it's still called 'Cortana'

    Looks like to me that it's still running according to Task Manager.

    Hey Clint,

    Yep, that's search, but called "Cortana" now. Right click on "Cortana' in the Processes tab, and click on "Go to details". You'll see it's actually for the "SearchUI.exe" process.
