Windows 8.1 upgrade issue

So I decided to upgrade my main PC to Windows 8.1 yesterday and the upgrade is painfully slow. But once it was installed (on a non touch based traditional PC), I was greeted with these:

Then when I started the desktop, I was greeted with:

Problem is I do not have a touch device and getting rid of these message with my mouse was challenging.  

Come on Microsoft, why don't you make this easier?  You know I''m on a non touch PC. You know I'm upgrading from Windows 8 (so I know the gestures). Someone at Redmond needs to own the customer user experience.
