    windows upgrade notification band across screen

    Hi All
    I came back to my laptop 8 pro to find a blue band across the screen with an upgrade notification. I don't want it(8.1). Can I stop that notification coming up again. It did lock the screen and I had to log out to get arround it.
    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Try turning off the live Store tile if you don't want notifications and see if that works.
