    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.

    This issue can occur if some of the system files are not working as expected.

    Note: Do not go with the ‘Reset PC’ option for now.

    Method 1: Follow these steps to disable Cortana:

    1. Sign-in to the PC with your Microsoft account.
    2. In the search box at the bottom, type Disable Cortana.
    3. Once the suggestions appear in the list, click Cortana & Search settings.
    4. From the right section of the Settings pane, move the top button to ‘Off’ to disable Cortana from Windows 10.

    1. Launch Cortana from the search bar on the taskbar.
    2. Then, from the left pane click the settings button.
