    Control panel->Text input->Languages->Settings and uncheck word
    completion and next word prediction. You can also selectively
    show/hide it with shift-space. Unfortunately, shift-space only
    appears to work when that bar is shown by default (i.e. word
    prediction is on) which means that your two choices are to disable
    it completely with no easy way of bringing it back or to enable it
    and then hide it manually each time. Personally, I want the
    notifier very rarely and having tried the second option, I got
    tired of constantly re-hiding it so now I've just completely
    turned it off.
