    This is so frustrating. The charm bar keeps appearing when I work and it is very distracting. Is there a way through windows 8 to switch it off? Also at times it takes me from my desktop to metro. This is a brand new HP COMPAQ laptop and clean from any infections. Can anyone help me? I would hate to have to buy windows 7 and go through all the trouble of reinstalling software etc. I prefer win 7 but since I could not find to buy a new laptop with win 7 I had no choice. I am stuck with this OS and need to solve this problem.

    Thank you all for your help!
