    I HATE Cortana, mainly because there is no way to ignore it. It keeps popping up on my laptop, asking for voice prompts. It does this in the middle of important work--it's like having a three year old embedded in my computer.

    How can I make Cortana stop interrupting tasks? I would like to delete it, but am told this is not possible.

    Settings, I believe you can turn off the setting for Cortana's alerts and other random stuff.

    Everything is switched to "off" in the settings, but it still keeps popping up, always at the worst moments and often several times in a row when I close it out. If I'm on the internet or in a game, it switches from that screen and brings up a message that takes the lower left forth of the screen and begs me to talk to it. I've even tried "shut up, Cortana" when it asks what I want... I can always hope that SOMETHING will do the trick...
