Some time back we had assistance from EE to disable the Cortana apps successfully.  However, we keep seeing the Cortana in Task Manager.  

In Task Manager when we right-click and 'Open FIle Location', we get folder  'Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy' not and apps (an.exe file)

How can we make it not appear in memory?

Besides EE help, we found a way to remove these Cortana apps from memory the file using Taskkill (but Cortana still appears):
- ActionUriServer.exe
- Cortana.exe
- Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy
- backgroundTaskHost.exe

Looking up these commands seem pertaining Cortana.

Please advice
