    How do I get rid of the crap --


    How do I get rid of the crap -- that keeps popping in from the right side of the screen when I'm trying to scroll down while on the internet. Disrupts my scrolling and then I have to get rid of the useless junk before I can clear the screen. Can I eliminate this intrusion without going to a new operating system? I have windows 8.1 with all of the latest updates. Thanks for any help.

    Hello Abqhudson,

    Please go ahead and post a screenshot showing what you are referring to help better clarify.

    Tapping into my psychic psycho powers, it sounds like you may be talking about while scrolling on a touchpad, and the charms bar is opening on the right side?

    If so, then see if disabling touchpad edge swipes may help.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Thanks for your help. I'm on a desktop computer.

    The vertical bar that comes in from the right may be the "Charm Bar"?

    I downloaded/ran the program you suggested to remove this. We'll see if that was successful - I'll let you know.

    Thanks very much for your prompt help.

    This may help also. Right click on the task bar and choose "Navigation" then uncheck "When I point to the upper-right corner, show the charms".

    Yes that's fine for disabling the hot corners.. but it's the edge-swipes on your touchpad whilst navigating that irritates some... for that Shawns tutorial works a treat!

    Still have the problem after I downloaded and ran Disable BR_TR_corners_charms_hint.reg

    In navigation -- show charms is not checked. I don't have a touchpad.

    Not even sure how I get this as I don't seem to be able to get it if I try. Seems to happen when I'm trying to scroll.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I was replying to abqhudson who stated they were on a desktop. Nobody said anything about a touchpad.

    Yeah, that'll only work if it was for a touchpad.

    If you're scrolling using a mouse instead, then check your mouse button settings (if any) to see if one is set to open the charms bar if pressed. My guess is that it would be if you press the scroll wheel.

    If all that doesn't work try Charms Bar Killer:
