Sometimes on startup I get randomly told to go to store and upgrade to 8.1, but I don't want to and I'm tired of this. Is there any way to disable this particular notification or even all Metro notifications?

it should work, I simply revert the setting from this update:

 

Update is available that enables a notification to be displayed that helps you update Windows 8 or Windows RT to Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1

"DisableOSUpgrade"=dword:00000001
