    Even after disabling Cortana, it is still using network, anyway to stop that?! 7cd82f98-151e-4caa-9c72-3a3fcabbb4ad?upload=true.jpg

    I had Windows 10 Home and this issue wasn't occurring. Last night I decided to freshly install Windows 10 Pro version and since then I am seeing this Cortana in the App history using Network that never happened to do in Windows 10 Home. Is there anyway to stop this from happening?

    I'm thinking to return back to Windows 8.1 I am fed-up of this garbage Windows 10 not respecting my privacy.

    :)

  4. Even after disabling Cortana, it is still using network, anyway to stop that?!

    Cortana Again Causing Terabytes Network Activity

    Cortana will not run in a local account. hence, the usage history of searching will still run. We suggest that you disable the
    Indexing Options. Follow these steps:

    • Press Windows key + X.
    • Click Control Panel.
    • Click Indexing Options.
    • From there you can modify and disable the search history of your computer.
    Let us know if you need further assistance.
