    remove "get cortana for my phone" message from cortana action window

    On all my pc's I now have a "get cortana for my phone" message in all the cortana action windows. How in the heck do I get rid of this? it is screwing up all my viewing habits for weather, sports score etc.

    Why does microsoft keep jamming all this junk in the cortana window, I don't want anything except what I choose to have displayed.

    See This Thread. It seems that there is no easy way to get rid of this spam. I was recently forced to perform a full recovery of my system, to OOTB conditions (due to other issues), and that did get rid of the annoying Cortana message. Of course, I have a backup HD, so I was able to reinstall all of my settings, apps and programs without too much swearing.
    This is the only method I've found that works, and I did extensive searches for a solution when the problem first arose.
