    How can I disable Cortana?


    I don't really use Cortana on my desktop.


    What's the proper way to disable it and remove the process?


    It's generating error in event log every couple of hours.


    Unable to start a DCOM Server: Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_1.13.0.18362_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy!CortanaUI.AppX360dyffbd5crx5cph6sy881bkkccrbr0.mca as Unavailable/Unavailable. The error:
    "2147942667"
    Happened while starting this command:
    "C:\WINDOWS\system32\backgroundTaskHost.exe" -ServerName:CortanaUI.AppXy7vb4pc2dr3kc93kfc509b1d0arkfb2x.mca


    Thanks

    :)

    • Select Advanced options.

    How can I remove this virus remnant?

    I was also going to suggest Autoruns.

    Check to make sure it isn't attaching itself to explorer. It should be the 3rd thing listed in Autoruns, the listing for the Shell. It should just be Explorer.exe. If it is anything else, that might be your problem.

    How can I disable Cortana?

    How to disable the touchpad.

    Hi Ralph,

    There are a lot of factors for this issue to occur. To
    isolate the issue, we have some questions for you:


    • Were there any changes made before the issue occur?

    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    If it is a tablet, the touchpad will not be disabled as a design. For more accurate information, we suggest that
    you contact your manufacturer
    for further assistance.

    Update us on how
    everything goes.

    Regards.
