    You can disable it following this guide Touch Keyboard Toolbar - Enable or Disable in Windows 8

    It has a life of its own that thing.

    All you need to do is right-click on the Taskbar, select Toolbars and uncheck Touch keyboard. Simple as pie.

    And then it comes back when you restart

    Has never come back for me.

    Drugo, is this on a machine with a touch screen? I kind of expect that it would be persistent on a machine with a touchscreen.

    As Adam says it's temperamental ... you need to set the Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel Service to manual.

    As I said, I suspect this is probably only on a machine with a touchscreen, my non-touch laptop has no problem as long as I uncheck the the Touch keyboard from Toolbars.

    Try the tutorial in the second post - you want to turn off the touch keyboard toolbar not the on-screen keyboard.
