It seems that NS disables Cortana (& search bar) for security reasons.

It seems that NS disables Cortana (& search bar) for security reasons. I'm running Windows 10 and Norton 360 downloaded almost 2 years ago. Yes it gets updated regularly.  

I'm not keen on Cortana and understand why NS cuts it off (it spies on you) but is there a way to just keep search bar?

Is there a setting or 2 in either of Windows or NS that I can adjust so I can have security and space bar?

I wish NS did disable Cortana.  I would love to get rid of it.

How have you determined it is Norton blocking Cortana?  I have Norton Security  and Windows 10 CU, and have no issue with Cortana and the search feature.

If you have just recently received the Creator's update, maybe check ALL your Windows settings. Many get reset with the update.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

I disabled Norton and as soon as I did the search button was available. However it appears that I then enabled NS and am still able to use search so perhaps the issue resolved itself now.
