Is it really possible to eliminate "search" from working background?

Hi

I'm running Windows 10 pro.
I've been seeing at Task Manager how "search" consumes RAM. And I looked in many places and found many "solutions" but none worked for me, I cant manage to definitely remove this.
So I'm posting this here to see if some of you know how to do this.

Thank you

Search is associated with the indexing. If you turn it off, the index will also be disabled.
But right click the start orb and, i8n "run" type services.msc
scroll down and double click Windows Search and disable it.

It is much quicker and more efficient than the built in facility.

It doesn't work. This was the first thing I did.
At services "search" is disabled. But it's live in the background process

Sorrry for that.

I have just had a look at two laptops here. One has the search turned off the other untouched. In neither is it currently running in processes?

Late reply, I'm sorry. I was off my PC all this time...

Back to the subject, I've tried all ways that I could find on the net and cant disable permanently "search".

I'm wondering now if this problem is related to my build.
My version: 1607 (OS build 14393.447)

Anyone knows how to do this?
