    i come home from work and windows store app is pinned to my taskbar. I did not create this at all could it be a virus or remotely created? all scans are clean and have all remote services disabled. other than that there's no other issues. so far......

    It is the default. Unpin it if you have no use for it in pinned status.

    That has happened to me a couple times. Probably Microsoft being obnoxious. Just unpin it.
