  1. Thank you so much. Copilot showed up on my W10 ThinkPad after a feature update and almost immediately began destroying my life by trying to “help”. It’s own instructions on how to turn it off weren’t accurate. Shocking, I know. Your method worked. Thank you again.

  2. I tried everything to get gpedit.msc to work and it still can t find any help anyone I can stand the fact that Microsoft can just do what ever it wants on the computer I paid for not them RRRRR I want this stupid copilot off my computer

  3. did you do the Windows Key+R ? And then type in gpedit.msc?
    Or, right click on the Start button, click on Windows Powershell (Administrator), type in gpedit.msc
    This method only disables Copilot, does not remove it. Nobody know how to remove the program

  4. I attempted to follow all the instructions provided, one at a time. Only thing that worked was turning off the automatically added updates. I continually got the message that gpedit.misc didn’t exist on my PC and could not be found. Nor did my PC use the Microsoft Powershell (Administrator). I have Command Prompt (Administrator) and “sometimes” I see the Powershell (Administrator) command prompt.

    Anytime Microsoft adds updates, my systems slows down, balks, and sometimes sticks.
    I consistently have to check for updates and install what I can hoping MSN doesn’t install something that screws up my system. Running and online business, this is very detrimental to good business service for my clients and reflects poorly on Microsoft, which is likely why most of my clients use Mac.
