    Any working way to remove Cortana?


    Is there a way to completely remove Cortana? I disabled it, but it keeps running in the background.
    I did find some suggestions to remove it, but it also removes the search and causes problems to other stuff.
    So is there a working way by now to do that?

    Thanks!

    :)

  2. E75 - Any way to remove "Emai" (Nokia Messaging)

    I think the app is part of the OS from the start so it can not be deleted.



    I deleted the account I created and use ProfiMail as my main mail client. I only use it simply for the fact that if I want to send a photo, ProfiMail is not the default mail client and it cannot be set as the main mail client.

    E75 - Any way to remove "Emai" (Nokia Messaging)

    I was completely disappointed in the "email" app on my E75 since it's not a true client, but a front-end for Nokia messaging. I was getting frequent disconnects, long delays in getting pushed (IDLE) email, etc.



    So I made the switch to Profimail and couldn't be happier. It works very well. Now I'd like to find a way to remove Nokia's email software to free up some memory and, if possible, remap the mail key to Profimail.



    Possible?



    Thanks.

    Is there a way to do that without downloading the reg file? (Can I do that myself?)
    Also, will that stop the Cortana background process?
    Because I already disabled Cortana itself alone, what you're suggesting is additional. or just another way to disable Cortana but leaving it working in the background?*Huh

    The tutorial I posted is for disabling Cortana, but you missed the part that the "Cortana" process you are seeing is actually for "Search" and not the disabled Cortana personal assistant.

    Thanks, but I just wonder if I should follow the tutorial, if I already disabled Cortana via Settings? is it just a manual way to do that? Or the tutorial actually disables another thing of Cortana?

    No need to also do the tutorial if you already disabled Cortana (the personal assistant).
