    Regedit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\

    Make a new KEY called Windows Search
    Make a new DWORD called AllowCortana
    Set the DWORD value to 0

    Restart PC

    People will eventually have to get used to the idea that Microsoft can't be expected to maintain backwards compatibility for every piece of outdated 3rd party application for eternity.
