I recently purchased a laptop that has Windows 10. However, I'm really disliking Cortana so I disabled it. But I just checked my Task Manager, it's still running and not terminated. Can I disable completely so it doesn't keep running in my background? Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

That should be quite easy.  Just right click on your Computer, go to Manage, open the tree for Services and Applications, locate the file that runs the program, and I believe it is called Cortana, and stop the services.  This should fix your issue.

    Click the Start button, type Cortana, and press Enter. Click the Notebook icon in the left-hand options pane, then select Settings from the list. Slide the slider control under “Cortana can give you suggestions…” all the way left to “Off.”
