    Any way to disable the Store app or disable Metro completely? I don't even use the Windows 8 Metro Start Screen, I use Classic Shell to have a Start button on the bottom left of the screen like previous versions of Windows had.

    Not sure on disabling, but if you run the app store then press Win Key +C it will open the charms bar, from here select settings

    look under preferences and turn off the recommendations, also look under app updates and turn off auto update

    I don't have the same issue as you, but I have noticed recently that the app store loads at windows startup

    I could be totally wrong, but when I saw the screenshot it looks exactly like the app store opening
