    To the OP, I had the same problem on my laptop using the Track Pad. I disabled the edge swipes in my track pad's Smart Gestures Utility. If I actually do need access to the charms bar I use the Hot Corner to open it.

    If you're willing to upgrade to 8.1, it can be disabled in PC settings, but only when the cursor is in the upper right corner. Still pops up when the cursor goes to the lower right, but I don't find this to be as much of a problem.
