This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

That's called the "Charms Bar", and the menu that appears with white icons whenever you hover over it is called the hint. I found this guide which explains disabling that "feature".

Just remember that if there is access to the keyboard or on-screen keyboard the charms bar can still be accessed with SUPER+C.

There is no access to the keyboard – John Jun 10 '13 at 18:30
I followed the guide. It removed the bar for the mouse but not for touch. – John Jun 10 '13 at 18:30
After some searching, I found that this program will disable the charm bar for touch screens. – Torvero Jun 10 '13 at 18:35

Wait for Windows 8.1 to get the official kiosk mode:

This is probably the best solution, however the asker may not have time to wait. – Torvero Jun 10 '13 at 18:44
the preview will be available at BUILD in 2 weeks. – magicandre1981 Jun 10 '13 at 18:46
