This question already has an answer here:
I am attempting to create a kiosk using Windows 8, but the menu that pop ups on the right side when one slides one's fingers in that area is an issue.
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.
