    Somehow a program was installed called "Windows Beta"!
    Messages keep popping up in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
    All MS subjects & it pings each time. They keep loading & cover the screen in the upper right,
    I can't see things in that corner, sometimes they come so fast the I have to keep deleting them to contiuse my work!

    How do I get rid of this? It is not listed anywhere that can delete a program!

    ANOTHER CASE WHERE Microsoft is trying to take over control of my computer!

    Nope...you have a virus. Get into safe mode and run your AV and any malware/spyware software you have.

    Seems like some people find a virus behind every tree!

    It is an app in the Microsoft "Store".

    How do I uninstall IT?

    Hello Tully,

    Since it's a modern app from the Store, see if you may be able to uninstall it using the method in the tutorial below.

    I just ran a search in the store and I didn't see anything called "Windows Beta". I'm wondering if this is a European Union issue?

    Win Beta


    It does not appear in the APP Store, it does not appear in the Charms.
    The only way to see it is to tap on one of the infuriating pop-ups!

    It doesn't show up anywhere except when I click on one of the pop up.

    Will send screen Shoot.

    Win Beta


    Can't take a screen shot because it covers the whole screen & when I try to do anything, the screen clears!

    Driving me nuts because the pop-ups cover the upper right of the screen. As many as 6 pop-ups.

it seems, that windows 8 is ignoring the default internet browser, because if i click a link (not in a browser) it opens IE 9 for default, i've tried to change Google chrome to the default, but it still ignores it.
