    Getting rid of the Date and Side Bar

    The way the date and sidebar pop up whenever I use my mouse in certain places is very annoying.

    How do I disable both of them?

    Also, how do I disable password protected log-on?

    The Charms bar will open when you move the mouse off screen to the top or bottom right corners. Its takes a little practice and have not heard of any way to disable. To by-pass the logon password see this Tutorial.
