I got a new Laptop last sunday and it is great (compared to my previous desktop) but whenever I type, my wrist rubs against the touchpad making the text cursor move and making me type stuff in the middle of what I already typed. In fact, while I was typing this, it happed again and the work Help appeared in the address bar!

In device manager, I am not given the option to disable or uninstall it. Nor is there an option in the mouse settings or on the computer itself! Any ideas?


PS: I got a 64 bit procesor for the first time in this laptop as well as Media Center XP. But, Media center ISNT 64 bit! Stupid Gateway! Does Media center come in 64bit?

It may be in the Control Panel. For Toshiba laptops, there is an icon called Toshiba HWSetup. If I go in there, there is a tab to adjust my Pointing Devices.

Maybe you have something similar.

Never mind i fixed it. I had to reinstall it so it would appear in the mouse setting in controll pannel. Then I disabled it form there, not device manager.
