You can't turn off the Cortana process, which is different than the Cortana Service, because it's an integral part of Windows Search.
If you've gone into the Cortana & Search settings and turned off the two settings shown in the screen shot below the Cortana Service is off. What you have left is as close to good old Windows Search as you're going to get.
